BATESON, Barbara - May 8, 1928 - December 17, 2017
Suddenly on Sunday, December 17, 2017 in Port Perry, at age 89.
Our beloved Mum, Nana, Little Nan, Barbara Bateson will be forever remembered in our hearts.
Dear wife of the late Joseph Ronald Bateson of Ajax.
Cherished mother of David (Trish) and Gary. Loving grandmother of Kristy (Ryan), Erin (Andrew), Lindsay (Nathan) and Andrew.
Proud great-grandmother of Brynn, Vivian, Bennett, Warren, Owen, Evelynn, Connor, and newly arrived Alexander.
Dear Aunty of nieces and nephews in Manchester, England and Ontario.
She will be forever remembered for her love of music and dancing, sense of humour, and the important role she played in caring for her grandchildren.
While she immigrated to Canada in 1953, her soul remained in England where she lived until young adulthood. Her recollections of living through WW2 taught us all the value of loved ones sticking together through tough times.
A celebration of life will be held for her friends and family in May, on what would have been Barbara's 90th birthday.
