It is with profound sadness that I announce the death of Barbara Jane Tillotson: my wife, my lover, my friend. Barbara’s brave journey through Alzheimer’s disease finally came to an end as she passed away peacefully at the Kelowna General Hospital on October 19, 2020, while I was at her side. Barbara was a deeply caring person with a true heart, beloved by her siblings, nieces and nephews. She will also be dearly missed by her extended family and friends, and the many co-workers who knew her when she worked at the William Roper Hull Home in Calgary. Barbara leaves to mourn her husband of 48 years, Don; and her sisters Beverly Newcombe and Kathy Newcombe; she was predeceased by her brother John Newcombe. The family will gather to honour her in the future, and she will be laid to rest in the family plot in Union Cemetery in Calgary, AB.
