PETSCHE, Barbara Irene - Suddenly, at home in Caledon, Ontario, on Saturday, June 28, 2014 in her 74th year. Barbara will be sadly missed by her loving family: Helmuth, her husband of 55 years; daughters, Dawna (George) of Ancaster and Brenda (Jose) of Luxembourg; sister, Debbie (Paul) of Otterburn Park; and cherished grandchildren, Dylan, Clare, Xavier and Gabriel; as well as extended family and friends. Thoughtfully remembered are Hilde and Herbie, card playing companions for decades, who provided support, laughs and friendship over the many years. Barbara was predeceased by her mother, Mary, who shared Barbara's love of needle arts and crafts. In her lifetime, Barbara had lived in Verdun, LaSalle and Chateauguay, Quebec and in Mississauga, Ontario, before settling in Caledon. A special thanks goes to Barbara's support workers from the local Red Cross and the Ontario March of Dimes and to her beloved Helmuth who cared for Barbara at home, as she wanted, to the end. Rest easy now Mum. Family and friends will be received at the Brampton Memorial Chapel, 10061 Chinguacousy Road (at Bovaird) in Brampton on Friday, July 4, 2014 from 2:30-3:30 p.m., with a Funeral Service to follow at 3:30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to a charity of your choice.
