It is with our most heartfelt sadness that we announce the passing of our mother. Barbara Amelia Aspin in Dunrovin Hospice House on June 14, 2014. Mom was predeceased by Dad, Harvey Aspin and her granddaughter, Heather Thomas. She is survived by her three children; Gary Aspin (Sherrill), Gail Bajer (Doug) and Les Aspin (Cheryl), her grandchildren; Brian, Jody, Jennifer, Amy, Paula, Chris and her thirteen great grandchildren.
Mom was born in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan on June 1, 1925. She was a member of the Quesnel Scandinavian Society and the Quesnel & District Senior’s Society and volunteered at the Golden Age Centre for many years. Mom will be lovingly remembered for her quick wit and sense of humor and her strong determination and independence. She worked tirelessly raising her family and enjoyed the simple things in life such as bird watching and travelling. She made several trips to Europe, the Oregon Coast, Vancouver Island and Maui.
Mom will be greatly missed by her family and friends. At her request there will be no funeral. The family asks that those wishing to honor Barbara’s memory by way of donation please do so to Dunrovin Hospice House. We want to give our sincere appreciation to Dr. Stephan Buys for his expert care, gentle guidance and compassion. We also wish to thank the nurses at Hospice for their kindness, care and attention.
