It is with a heavy heart but a positive spirit that the Hart family confirms the passing of the very brave Barbara Mary Hart. Barb endured a long and nasty battle with Multiple Sclerosis and it was just this past Sunday that the disease finally took more of her than she had left. Barb will forever be remembered for her amazing spirit and humanity. She saw the best in everyone and was an appreciative audience for someone trying to be funny. Barb had an incredible skill for never taking herself seriously and yet forgiving those who did. She loved her family ferociously and in particular admired her three older sisters Donna, Nancy, and Susan for the happy and successful lives they led. A very special thanks and acknowledgement to Marg Hart, Barb’s guardian angel these past several years. Barb will be permanently in the souls of not only her three sisters and Marg, but also brothers-in-law Barry, Kevin, Doug, and Ed; step sister Karen, step brother Dale; sister-in-law Jenny; nieces Kaitlyn, Emily, Laura, Grace, and Stephanie; nephews Ryan, Clarke, Graham, Brent, Ethan and David.
