LANE, Helen Barbara Born April 12, 1946, passed away unexpectedly, but peacefully in her home on June 9, 2012. Born in Dorset England, she grew up in Jersey where she met her husband Bill and immigrated to Toronto in 1966, finally settling down on Vancouver Island in 1973. Barbara was an artist and poet who kept a beautiful garden, but her passion in life was her family, including her 3 children Paul, John and Kristina, their spouses Jill, Elysha and Ronnie, her 7 grandchildren and her loving husband of nearly 50 years. Words cannot express how much she will be missed. A celebration of light will be held at 2:30pm on Monday June 18th at McCalls Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate a donation in Barbara's name to The Crohns and Colitis Foundation.
