She is loved and will be sadly missed by her son Keith (Bonnie) of Calgary, granddaughter Amy (Joel) Cann, great-granddaughter Chloe and great-grandson Hunter of Calgary, grandson Matt, great-granddaughter Ava of Calgary, stepgrandsons, Michael and Steven (Jackie) Clark of Calgary, daughter Donna (Ralph) Nespor of Stonewall, grandsons, Cory (Ellen) and Brett of Calgary, granddaughter Kristy (Dan) McGregor of Oak Bluff, great-granddaughters, Aribella, Skilyr and Tenley, Jodi (Brian) Davis of Stonewall and great-granddaughter Callie and great-grandson Linden, granddaughter Rikki (Brandon) Martell of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin and great-grandson Boden, sister Joyce Mohan of Detroit, as well as numerous nieces and nephews throughout Canada and the USA.
She was predeceased by her husband Robert (Bob) Jones in 2010, sister Pat Greavett, and parents, Louise and Charles Goodhand.
Barb was born on May 5, 1931, in Toronto, Ontario to Charles and Louise Goodhand (nee Thibeault). She spent her early years in Toronto and moved to Pembroke, Ontario at the age of 10 where she finished her schooling. She worked for the Bank of Montreal in Pembroke and at age 16 moved to Deep River, Ontario to continue working for the bank. In Deep River she met Robert (Bob) Jones and in 1952 they were married. Barb and Bob moved their family to Pinawa, Manitoba in 1963, where they finished raising their two children. Barb was well known in the community for her sewing (sewing clothes for herself and daughter), crafting, knitting and baking. She loved curling, golfing, reading and her bridge group. In her later years, she took up bowling. Barb took pride in passing her passions onto her grandchildren spending many summers together with them. She never missed the monthly trip to Winnipeg to attend Rainbow Stage for a picnic with friends. Pinawa meant a great deal to Barb, and she believed strongly in supporting local events and charities. Over the years Barb and Bob enjoyed many worldly travels together, with trips to New Zealand, Italy, Spain and many others.
The family would like to thank the Ironwood Care Home (staff) in Pinawa where she received outstanding care and compassion for many years. We would also like to express our sincere gratitude to Dr. Garg and Mark Bautista, pharmacist, both of Pinawa, as well as, Dr. Graham of Stonewall and the staff at Rosewood Lodge, Stonewall. We are truly grateful to them and her caregivers, thank you.
Donations in memory of Barb may be made to a charity of their choice.
Cremation has taken place. Following COVID-19 family and friends will gather to celebrate Barb's life.

Personal condolences to the family may be made through MacKenzie Funeral Home,

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • Dear Keith and Donna and family, sending you our deepest condolences at the passing of your mom (Auntie Barb). I can’t get over how much she looks like my mom in the picture. I hope they are reunited again in heaven and having a few laughs together. Blessings to get you through this difficult time Cathy (Greavett) - Posted by: Cathy klein (Neice) on: Jan 25, 2021

  • Our deepest sympathies to you, Donna and Keith, and to your families. I was so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I had tried a few years back to visit your mom in her new residence in Pinawa as I had done when she was still in her home. She may have been away that day. I also tried getting in touch with her by phone and failed to do so. I enjoyed our visits when I went to Pinawa for a ski. I also tried to contact you both without success at that time. I hope you are all keeping safe and well. We send our love and comfort. Penny, David, and Bryn - Posted by: Penny Jones Square (niece) on: Jan 23, 2021
