Barbara (Drew-Brook) Harris

Sustained by her loving family and friends, supported by outstanding caregivers, Barbara died peacefully at home on February 7, at the age of 92.

She was deeply loved by her family and friends and her late husband Bobs. After serving as a Wren in World War II, raising a family, and cherishing glorious summers at Go Home Bay, she pursued a lifelong love of gems and jewellery and became a certified gemmologist and fellow of the Gemmological Association of Great Britain.

She leaves her children: daughter Nancy and her husband Tony Reid and their children Stephanie (Jeff), Daniel (Kristin), Natalie (Matt), and David (Leigh); daughter Janet and her husband Jon Reid and their sons Giles (Adriana) and Julian; son Robert and his wife Penny and their children Rose and Robert; daughter Pam and her daughters Maddie and Emma. Delighted great-grandmother to Lucy, Chloe, and Isla; William and Simon; Roman; and Sam.

A memorial gathering will be held later this spring. In memoriam donations, if desired, may be made to Emily's House: a special place for kids (Donation address: 558 Gerrard Street East, Toronto, M4M 1X8).
