January 5, 1943 - February 13, 2017
Peacefully at home with her family by her side on Monday February 13, 2017 at the age of 74. Beloved wife of Peter Ferguson for 48 wonderful years. Loving mother of Christina (Vince Floccari). Cherished daughter of the late Lucy Jones and daughter-in-law of the late Loretta Ferguson. Dear sister-in-law of Timothy (Betty-Anne), Gerry (Sharon), Mary (Jeff). Loving niece of Lillian (Michael Santone) and Nick Bruno (the late Mary Bruno). Also pre-deceased by 5 Aunts and 3 Uncles. Barbara will be dearly missed by extended family and friends. Barbara faced her illness with courage, grace and a positive outlook every day. Barbara was never afraid of change and her successful careers as a teacher, business woman and public service manager were an important part of her life. She was an accomplished pianist and had a great appreciation for the arts. She had a great love of life and nothing was as dear to her as her time spent with family and friends. Thanks to all the many doctors and staff at The Ottawa Hospital, in particular Dr. Pantarotto, Dr. Mimeault and Dr. Ryan who were able to extend her journey. Friends may call at the
