TUSTIAN, Barbara McKnead July 17, 1924 – October 14, 2013 . It is with heartfelt family love that we say goodbye to our mother and grannie, Barbara McKnead Tustian (nee Fleming). Barbara was born in Greenock, Scotland. She met and married our dad and granddad Royal Canadian Navy seaman, William Reid Tustian in 1944 at the height of WWII. She raised her family in East Vancouver before retiring to Vancouver Island in 1995. She is survived by her children: Margaret (Don), Bob (Pipi), Wayne (Cherryl) along with ten grandchildren and four great grandchildren. In her passing she has been at last reunited with her eldest son Ken and her husband Bill. Barbara loved her family and she will continue to be a model of strength, courage, good sense and good humour for all of us. At her request there will be no public service. Please instead toast her life with a cup of tea and hug the ones you love. Our thanks to the caring and dedicated staff of NRGH, VIHA and Lakeside Gardens. Sands ~ Nanaimo
