Barbara Elaine Holmes (nee Sabourin) beloved mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt and friend. Born September 25, 1962 in Vernon, B.C. – passed suddenly October 26, 2016 in Edmonton, Alberta.
Barb was caring, loved her family, her dogs and her friends. She is survived by husband of 28 years Stan, sons John (J.D.) and Alan of Edmonton.

She was happiest doing her crafts, walking dogs, beach combing, watching a movie with her sons and travelling for concerts with Stan. While she never felt a need to travel from home she was always happy to see family and friends and indulged Stan’s whims to travel to see classic rock bands, hike and explore new beaches.
