BARBARA EILEEN THORLAKSON (published on April 17, 2010)

BARBARA EILEEN THORLAKSON After a brief, but devastating lung illness, Barbara took her last breaths and passed away on April 13, 2010 at the age of 57. Her last few months were very difficult, but the time with her family was precious to her. Through it all, she was the fierce and strong person we all knew - true to herself, fearless, demanding, funny, and tough as nails. She is survived by her two daughters, Andrea (Keith) and Jocelyn, her father Ellert Jonas, her sister Linda (Gordon), her brother Ken (Patti), her nieces and nephews and her special friends. She was predeceased by her beloved mother Aldis. Barbara was a warm and generous person, who loved being around and helping other people. People saw that in her right away, and loved her for it. She was a R.N. and worked for many years in Emergency at Health Sciences Centre. Special thanks to the doctors and staff at Victoria General Hospital who took care of Barbara during her last weeks, in particular Dr Griffin and the I.C.U. nursing staff, especially Carol who was wonderful and even fought Barb to a draw most of the time. Cremation has taken place. A private memorial service for her family will be held at a later date. Donations in memory of Barbara may be made to the Lung Association, Manitoba at 629 McDermot Ave., Winnipeg, MB R3A 1P6 or NEIL BARDAL INC. (204) 949 - 2200
