Obituary

 

Barbara McInnis (née Daniel) passed away on Dec. 23, 2018, at the age of 85, joining her beloved husband Bruce, who died Nov. 30, 2017.

 

Barb is lovingly remembered by her children: Vicky (Mike Hansen), John (Karen Keenan) and Elizabeth Maccabe (Scott).

 

Also remembered by her grandchildren Erika, Laurel, Elise and Justin, her brother Jim, cousin Margaret, sisters-in-law June, Marian, Shirley (Balfour) and Doreen, and by many family members and friends.

 

Barb was devoted to family and to her hometown of Kincardine, spending glorious summers at the cottage on the lake. During her teaching years she particularly enjoyed helping students from disadvantaged circumstances, finding something positive to say in every report card. (“He is a really fast runner” is an example of a desperate effort.)
Visitation will be held at the Davey-Linklater Funeral Home, 757 Princes Street, Kincardine from 1-1:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 12, 2019. The funeral service in Barb’s memory will follow at 2 p.m., followed by light refreshments in the Davey-Linklater lounge. In case of inclement weather, the family encourages people to think of Barb instead of driving to attend.

 

Interment Kincardine Cemetery.
