Lyons, Barbara Elaine - It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our mother, grandmother, sister and friend. Barb (nee Nield) left us suddenly but peacefully on Monday January 7, 2019 at her home in Georgetown, Ontario. Barb will be dearly and sadly missed by her loving daughters Marnie (Brent Carey) and Amber (Colin Metham), brother John (Sandy) and sister Debara (Greg Lyons). She was proudest Nan to her grandchildren Dylan, Liam, Ryan, Parker and Reid. Barb was a dear aunt to Kim Nield- Paré (Keith), Sue Gilroy (Steve) and Lori Dunigan (Digger), and great aunt to Colton, Matthew and Johnny Paré, Maddie and Charlie Dunigan, and Nick Gilroy. Barb follows the footsteps in the sand of her beloved parents Earl and Aileen, predeceased. She leaves behind former husband Brian Lyons, and many close, dear friends too numerous to mention and for fear of leaving someone out as you all meant so much to her.
Visitation at J.S. Jones Funeral Home in Georgetown on Friday January 11, 2019 from 5 to 8 pm. A Celebration of Life service will be held at Living Hope Alliance Church in Georgetown on Saturday January 12, 2019 at 10 am, with a reception to follow in the church gymnasium. Barb explicitly stated her wish for this to be a CELEBRATION, and even went so far as to suggest that people should wear bright colours if they wish. Expressions of sympathy can be directed to the SickKids Foundation, Crossroads, Canadian Cancer Society, Operation Smile or a charity meaningful to you.
