Barbara Beatrice Jones

August 4, 1922 - November 4, 2012


It is with great sadness, we announce the passing of longtime Shawnigan Lake Resident, Barb Jones, on November 4, 2012, at the age of 90, in Cowichan District Hospital.

Barb was born in Kamloops, August 4, 1922 to Jeff and Winnie Morgan.  Her family first moved to Victoria, then later to Cherry Point where she attended Bench School with her two sisters.  She left school to work on the Malahat doing housekeeping for Harry and Marie Jones and later married their son H.A. Jones (Bill) in 1943.  Mum and Dad moved to Shawnigan where they lived in the village until they built their new home across the lake.  Barb loved her daily coffee with the locals, attending her home and garden, and the fun times spent with family and their many friends.

Survived by her son Rex (Janice) Jones of Shawnigan Lake, and their children Shannon and Trevor Jones, daughter Marg (Rob) Armour of Duncan and their daughter Cindy (Mark) Bryson and great-grandchildren Tyson and Brody Black, Morgan and Devon Bryson, plus many nieces and nephews.

The past few years she enjoyed living at Alpenrose Manor in Duncan, under the care of the Loftus family.  Although she endured many health challenges in the last few years, she remained a bright and cheery little lady who loved to share her knowledge of earlier times.

Mum will be laid to rest in the Shawnigan Lake Cemetery next to Dad, and they will remain “Together Forever”.  As per wishes, there will be no funeral and flowers are gratefully declined.

My sister’s and I will never forget the kindness Barb gave to our family when she volunteered to drive our mother to the Victoria Cancer Clinic in the late 1980’s.
Barb’s friendliness and good sense of humor made her a joy for our mother on her journey to Victoria.
Barb and I shared the same birthday August 4 and I have always thought of her on this day because of the gift she gave to us so many years ago.

Relation: through my brother - Norm Usher

We were so sorry to hear of Barb’s passing. Everytime we went out to B.C. to visit my brother, we stopped in for a visit with Bill & Barb and then just Barb. She was a sweetheart and always so gracious. She was so good to my brother and his family and they all loved her. Barb was always interested in her family and how everyone was doing. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all her family.

From: Irene Cates
Relation: We were friends

I am saddened to hear of Barb’s passing and regret not being in touch with her the past few years. We met in l945 on the Malahat, introduced to her and Bill by my uncle, Harold Gaunt. She was a fun-loving lady, likeable and genuine.
Please accept my condolences for your loss.
Sincerely, Irene Cates.
