BARBARA MARTIN (CARON)
Date of Passing: Jun 11, 2021Offer Condolences or Memory Make a donation to CancerCare Manitoba Foundation
Born in St. James, Winnipeg, she attended school at St. Ann's Roman Catholic Church where she remained a loyal parishioner all of her life.
She married Richard Martin in 1962. They spent many summers at their cottage in Grand Marais. Together they raised two sons: Greg (Jennifer) and Ed (Liane). Hard work was never a stranger to her, although in her down time she enjoyed gardening, knitting, and her heart-dog Cleo. Thanks to her nephew Gerry (Linda), she went on a trip of a lifetime to Europe in 2005. However, above all else Barb's true loves of her life were her three grandsons: Zachary, Connor and Bailey.
Barbara was predeceased by Richard in 1998, her brother Gerald in 2014, and brother-in-law Steve in 2021. She will be dearly missed by her children, grandchildren, in-laws, Corrine, Al and Claudette, as well as by many nieces and nephews.
In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to CancerCare Manitoba or to Diabetes Canada (Winnipeg).

Aunty Barb will be missed. May she rest in Peace. Our thoughts are with you. - Posted by: Shawna Coulthard and Richard Schipper (Family friend) on: Jul 03, 2021
Aunty Barbara was a lovely lady, she was so wonderful to my mom and dad. My parents never had a car, and I remember Uncle Richard and Aunty Barbara would take all of us to the beach and even to the Peace Gardens in the States. We had some great times. She will be sadly missed. All our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. - Posted by: Allan and Sharon Procter (Friends) on: Jun 20, 2021
