Dearest Family of Barbara  King,

We were so sad to hear of Barbara's passing and we offer our deepest sympathy. I know it is little consolation at this sad time, but it should be of some satisfaction to know that in her passing you can celebrate the end of a very long and productive life.

The measure of a life well-lived is not in how much money one has or what possessions they have accumulated, but rather through the lives they touched and the love they've shared. Her absence here on earth has left much sorrow  behind. If the outpouring of sympathy on her loss is any indication, which I know it is then you can proudly and confidently say that her life indeed was a life well lived.
Tom, I know you'll find peace and comfort in knowing that her loss is felt by all who knew and loved her.

In Sympathy,

Terri Floyd and Ron Ames

I would like to offer my sympathy to the family and friends of Barbara Ann Scott. A friend came across her obituary and forwarded it to me as she remembered the story of how I got my name. I never met Barbara, but I was named after her. My father was from Watertown, NY and he admired her skating, though he told me he never spoken to her. I'm not sure he ever told my mother why he wanted to name me Barbara Scott, but it worked out well as my mother's maiden name was also Scott, though no relation to Barbara. I read about Barbara in a book about skaters once and was pleased to see a photo of the lady I was named for. Barbara never knew she had touched a young man from Watertown in such a way that he would name his daughter after her. I hope she would have been pleased. I am proud to have her name.

Dear Tom,

I was so very sad to hear of Barbara Ann's passing....she was truly a wonderful and extraordinary person...my deepest sympathies to you.

Hopefully the fond memories of a loving, happy and fulfilling life together along with your strong faith that you will one day be reunited in eternal life will provide you the comfort you need in this difficult time.

Barb was a remarkably accomplished person and role model but even more than that she was at all times kind and gracious to everyone she met...the epitome of class. She will be greatly missed by the thousands of people she knew, touched and inspired.

After living such a meaningful and inspirational life may she rest in peace.

I was so proud of Barbara as I watched and photographed her when she was paraded through the streets of Ottawa after one of her skating titles. I have one of her passing the National War Memorial and I've kept a copy of her Life Magazine cover picture.

Barbara, Our family feels a true loss. We grieve with your amazing husband. Makenzie is going to miss seeing you at church every week with her grandmother. You and your husband always dressed your very best and looking like a King and Queen. You will be missed so very much. You were so very famous but treated every person as if they were a close friend. You never acted as if you were above anyone else. You loved God and your husband so much. I know he misses you terribly as my family does. I feel honored just to have met you and I thank you for being so kind to my daughter. She loved seeing your gold medal, your outfits & the Barbara Ann Doll the most. We're still trying to find her a doll but they're hard to come by. We miss you Mrs. Barbara Ann.
Love, Mary Kay, Amanda & Makenzie

My deepest sympathies to Tommy and all those who loved her.

Our family would like to convey our condolences to the family of Ms. Scott. Our mother (the late) Marilee Martha Vaillant (nee McNeill) was a club professional in the late 50's in Port Arthur, ON and spoke of Ms. Scott often. I am not sure of they ever met, however our mothers love for figure skating is instilled in all members of our family. Thank you for her inspiration

October 01, 2012
I am so very sorry to hear of Barbara Ann's passing. I shed tears as I have been trying to find a way to connect with her since my mother's illness last fall. Barbara is a cousin to us through my maternal(late)grandfather's family and I so desperately wanted to unite and meet with her. My own daughter, ChloeAnne is a dancer and she looked up to her distant cousin Barbara with hope of someday meeting her. Our family is very sad to hear of this news. Barbara will always be remembered as a "sweetheart" in our hearts. Blessings, Victoria
