Born January 9, 1944 in Vancouver, British Columbia, to Edna and Ernest “Allen” Lee, she passed away on October 1, 2013, with her loving daughters by her side.
Barbara grew up in Vancouver, B.C., and moved to Orcas Island, WA, in 1974. She spent 20 years on Orcas Island, raising her two daughters. After raising her daughters, Barbara returned to live in Surrey, B.C., where she unselfishly dedicated her life to caring for her family, most recently her aging father and sister. She loved to garden, quilt, sew, spend time with her children and grandson Derek (her pride and joy).
This wonderful soul is preceded in death by her mother Edna, sister Joyce, and niece Teresa. She is survived by her daughter Lorraine Wojcik (Kevin) and grandson Derek of Poulsbo, Wash., daughter Arleen MacBryer of Bellingham, Wash., her father, three sisters and brother, and many nieces and nephews of British Columbia.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, Oct. 26, 2013, at the American Legion, in Eastsound, on Orcas Island, WA, from 2 to 5 p.m..
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in her name to the American Cancer Society.
