BARBARA ELLEN PAYNE (published on January 10, 2009)

BARBARA ELLEN PAYNE (nee INKSTER) February 5, 1922 - December 30, 2008 Mom was known for her big heart; a heart so kind and caring that when in November of 2007 the doctor asked her how she felt on a scale of 1 to 10 she replied: If I could give my eyes to my friend I'd be gone. That heart was attacked again and left her very tired. It is with deep sadness that we must announce her passing. Mom was predeceased by her husband William in 1999; brothers Archie, Bill, John and Ernie Inkster; sisters Emily McDonald, Gertie Carruthers, Harriet Wilson and special sister-in-law Shirley Inkster. Left to cherish her memory are her children, Barbara; Bob (Barb); Jim (Debbie); Lynn (Bill) Demchuk. Grandchildren Troy (Rachelle) Payne; Tracy (Kevin) Barrett; Sarah Payne (Jeff), Emily Payne; Cory and Christa Payne (Judy); Sheri (Doug) Issler, Chris Demchuk. Great-grandchildren Casandra and Katelynn Payne (Troy); Jordynn and Jayd Barrett; Nathan and Justin Issler. Sister-in-law Doreen Inkster. Many nieces and nephews as well as all those (old) youngsters who were privileged to spend time on the farm. Mom was a longtime member of the Sandringham Ladies Club. Her hobbies were knitting (squares for afghans given to the terminally ill); sewing tops for the club to make quilts for those in need. She worked hard on the family farm in Dauphin; always had a large garden and gave a good portion of it away. She lived for her family and her many friends. A game of cards was a must when one visited. At her request, cremation has taken place and interment will be held at the Dauphin Cemetery on August 9, 2009; Mom and Dad's anniversary. If friends and family so desire, donations can be made in her memory to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Many thanks to those who cared for her and to the friends who visited and extended their love and concern. Mom Your memory is our keepsake From which we will never part God has you in his keeping We have you in our hearts. TO LOVE A MOM To love a Mom and then to part, Is the greatest trial to the human heart. Years of striving, little of play, Loving, giving, the whole of the way. A cherished smile, a heart of gold, To the dearest Mother, the world could hold. Happy memories, fond and true, From us who thought the world of you. Beautiful memories are treasures ever, Of happy days when we were together. With aching hearts we whisper low, BLESS you MOM, we'll miss you so. Father in Heaven hear our prayer, Guard our Mother with tender care. Be a good Shepherd, don't leave her alone, Love her as we loved her when she was at home
