MEYERHOFF, Barbara (Babs) (nee Devitt)
December 15, 1933 - January 7, 2013
It is with sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Barbara Meyerhoff (wife, mother, grandmother and teacher). Barbara is survived by her brother Dennis, her beloved husband of 56 years John, and her four children Bruce (wife Viva), Andrew (wife Mika), Dean (wife Cathy) and Kate (husband Bjorn). Barbara was also a loving grandmother to her 10 grandchildren (Halle, Aysha, Daniel, Reece, Riley, Spencer, Mejun, Sean, Fiona, and Sophia). Barbara was born and raised in Vancouver and was blessed with strong extended family connections between parents, grandparents, siblings and cousins. Family was her lifeblood. In 1956 she married the love of her life John Meyerhoff. They would go on to have four children. She later returned to teaching elementary school and her passion/skill was in teaching children to read. In retirement her grandchildren became her new love. Her loyalty, honesty, joviality and generosity of spirit were renowned by all who knew her. She made the world a better place. Barbara's memorial will take place at the Ladner Baptist Church, 5624 Ladner Trunk Road, Ladner, B.C. on Monday, January 14, 2013 at 11:00 am. You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence at the family's online obituary at
