My Mom passed away on Saturday after a lengthy battle with cancer. I have intentionally not discussed her illness here, but wanted to post this so that friends and colleagues who read this site can be notified. Her obituary follows:
NEIL – Judith (Judy) Grace, born September 26, 1945, died at home on October 11, 2003. She is lovingly remembered by her sons Kevin Barefoot (Wendy Muir) and Darren Barefoot (Julie Szabo), grandson Miles Barefoot, sister Lynn Heenan, friend Roberta Hower, and a large circle of friends and colleagues. She is predeceased by her parents Mabel and Don Neil.
Judy was born in Saskatoon and completed her education with a BComm from U of S. spent time in Toronto and Vancouver before settling for the last eleven years in North Saanich. She will be remembered as a independent woman who loved the outdoors. Her wisdom and easy laugh will be sorely missed.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a charity of your choice.
There will be a reception in the afternoon of Saturday, October 18. We’re still working on location and details, but I’ll update this entry when I’ve got them sorted out.
