MILLSON, Barbara Ruth Millson   -  Our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend, Barbara Ruth Millson (nee Taylor) passed away peacefully on June 16, 2022 at Lakeridge Health Bowmanville at the young age of 81. 

Barbara will be lovingly missed by her devoted and dotting husband of 63 years, Gordon; Her children Dale (Sandy), David, Scott (Sherri), Tracy (Joanne) and Fred; Her grandchildren, Nicole (Chris), Brandon (Ashley), Tanner (Jana), Andy, Dayna (Derek), Shayla, Hunter, Lexi, Jonathon and Mary; Great-Grandchildren Seamus, Fionn, Cora, Dallas, May, Denver and Stella; as well as her loving siblings who have been so supportive to Barb and Gord in recent years; and the numerous other relatives, friends and neighbours who loved and adored, Barbara. 

She was the beloved daughter of the late Laverne & Wes Taylor. 

Barbara grew up in Tyrone where she met the love of her life, Gord.

They spent the last 63 years in Newcastle where they raised their 5 boys and watched their 10 grandchildren and 7 great-children grow.

Barbara was an amazing woman who demonstrated tremendous empathy, love and kindness to everyone she met and will be forever missed.

We invite you to come celebrate, reminisce and remember Barbara on June 25, 2022 at The Newcastle Town Hall between 12pm-3pm.  Memorial Donations may be made in Barbara’s name to The Durham Region Autism Services. 

The family wishes to send a special thank you to Dr. Corpus who went above and beyond, the staff at Lakeridge Health Bowmanville, and all the nurses at The VON for the wonderful wound care they had performed in recent months.
