Barbara Ann’s Obituary
Barbara Ann Peterson, beloved mother, grandmother (Nan) and great-grandmother passed peacefully June 5, 2021 at Roseway Manor with her daughters by her side. She was born in Timmons, Ontario on November 18, 1942 to the late Joan Maynard then adopted and raised by the late Rita and Horrace Garraway.
She was raised in Toronto until her early 20s and her adventurous soul brought her to Nova Scotia. She then located to Jordan Bay where she then married John Peterson and had her three daughters. Barb then made her way to Fredericton, New Brunswick where she made her home for over twenty years with the late Wayne “Red” MacDonald. Barb had a very compassionate soul. While caring for her elderly mother she pursed her calling around 50 years old and took her PSW at the Humberland College. She then cared for the elderly in Fredericton, New Brunswick for many years. Once she retired she made her way back to Nova Scotia where she lived the rest of her life. She was a very strong willed, compassionate and loving woman. She always made you smile… most of the time. She loved doing crafts, especially knitting dish cloths with her neighbour Madeline. She loved watching the W channel movies. She especially loved to spend time with her family, having family dinners and just enjoying the company. She loved all of her grandchildren, they were the highlight of her life.
Barb is survived by her three daughters Shelley (Peter), Kathy (Raymond), and Dennise (Ronnie). She is also survived by her grandchildren Devin (Chelsea), Kayla (Shamus), Jamie (Ashley), Jeremy (Amber), Anthony (Brea) and Dillian (Carol). Along with her three great granddaugters (Shay, Willow and Ava) and two great grandsons (Liam and Owen) and another great grandson on the way.
