Farewell my friend....
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of a vibrant and ambitious woman.
Barbara Joy Clarke passed away on February 20, 2016, surrounded by her family, after a short illness.
Survived by her husband, Barry, whom she met and fell in love with at the age of 16, her two sons,
Paul and Steven, the prides of her life, and her two grandchildren, Alexis and Cole, whom she adored.
She was a remarkable woman who had more zest for life and living it to the fullest than anyone I have ever met. We became friends in 2001 when I first designed her website. Her emails and phone calls since that day were always filled with the love for her husband and family as well as the tales of the adventures that she and Barry took on a regular basis. I don't recall ever having a conversation with her that had any negative thoughts.
She was so proud of the many books she had written, especially "How to Have Amazing Kids" and "Lasting Marriages". These two were the products of what she truly believed in and the reason why she had such a wonderful marriage and respectful and caring children. I was very proud to be on her literary journey with her and see all the successes she had.
I will miss her dearly as I know all of her friends will. I am honoured to have called her my friend and will forever remember the awesome woman who was always so positive and caring and could brighten up a room as soon as she walked in with her infectious smile.
Farewell my friend...
You will be greatly missed!
