It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Barbara "Barb" Mason on

Dearly loved mother of Mary-Kay and her husband Andrew Vary and devoted Nanny to

of London and Beverley O’Neil (Dan) of Denfield. Barb is lovingly remembered by
her many nieces and nephews who she loved dearly as well as by her cousins. Predeceased

Born in London on February 4th, 1941. Barb spent most of her life looking after
and teaching children and found great fulfillment in the Special Education field.
Barb was a life-long member of the Royal Canadian Legion and served as President
of Branch #410 in Port Stanley. If Barb had chosen another field, it would have
been nursing; she was a natural caregiver and extended that care unselfishly to
others. A lover of reading, Barb spent hours reading any and all types of books
and had a keen interest in mystery and romance novels. In her later years, Barb
was given the opportunity to travel to Florida where she developed a love for bluegrass
music and flea markets. Barb was well known for her love of Elvis Presley, sharing
stories and her love for her family. Her three grandsons were her absolute pride
and joy and she never missed an opportunity to share stories about them.
