Barbara Holmes

August 22, 1940 — January 22, 2023

Barbara Ann Holmes (née Nidd)

August 22, 1940 – January 22, 2023

Barbara passed away unexpectedly at the age of 82, with her family by her side. Loving wife to Robert Holmes, and proud mother to Donald, Catherine (Denis Delorme), Heather (Joseph Delle Monache), and Ian (Mellissa Trudel). Five grandchildren will miss her adoring attention: Eric (Brittany), Michelle (Naythan), Mitchell (Brooklyn), Alex (Madison), and Oliver. She is survived by her siblings Eileen (Doug Moulton), Eric (Cynthia), and Philip (Susan Leroux), as well as by many nieces and nephews.

Barbara found vast enjoyment in her career as an elementary school teacher, spanning four decades, for the Ottawa Carleton District School Board. Her retirement encompassed extensive travel, and many happy days on the dock at the cottage.

Heartfelt thanks go to the doctors and nursing staff in the Ottawa Civic ICU for their outstanding care.

In keeping with Barbara’s wishes, there will be no formal gathering. Donations can be made in Barbara’s honour to the CNIB.
