It is with huge sorrow that we said goodbye to a dear loving mother and Grandma and Great-Grandma peacefully on Thursday September 12th 2019 at 8:50am at Golden Years Nursing home in Cambridge, Ontario.
She was surrounded by family at her bedside. Barbara McRae was 90 years old and she will be deeply missed by everyone. She was born in Royal Oak Michigan she held a number of different jobs at Norris Bakery and Lawrence Golf and KW Optical.
