Barbra Dianne Cargill (nee Vink)

April 28, 1958 – July 31st, 2012

It is with immeasurable sadness that we announce the passing of a unique and amazing

partner, mother and friend.

Barb was born in New Westminster, B.C. but spent a large portion of her life in Nanaimo;

and the past six years in Yellow Point with her spouse and best friend, James Bastian.

While in Nanaimo, she raised three children, Blake (Sally), Camille (James) and Charlotte. Predeceased by her father Dave in 2003,

Barb is also survived by her mother Ruth,

sister Darlene (Stan), brothers David, Jay and Robert (Kim), ‘stepkids’ Kyla (Shawn) and Janna as well as nephews Pavel, Nigel and Aidan.

Also missing ‘Bubba’ will be grandchildren Jordan, Calob and Eli.

Barb will be remembered for a lot of great qualities, but especially for her easily brought on laughter, which entered a room before she did. She brought a new meaning to the word ‘courage’ in her battle with cancer and died peacefully at home with Jamie by her side and the ocean in her view. Many thanks to; Dr. Hart, the doctors and staff at N.R.G.H. Emergency,

Naturopathic Dr.’s McKinney, O’Neil and

Yim and the homecare nursing staff.

Special thanks to special friends Glynis and Diane, who helped her through her final days and made her feel like a lady again, and to Richard and Sandi; who’s support has been immense.

Celebration of life to be announced,

in lieu of flowers, a donation to B.C. Children’s Hospital would be appreciated.
