Much loved mother of Bill and Debbie Aziz, Michelle and Eli Faysal, Bob and Anne Aziz, Mary and Ryner Stoetzer, Margaret and Dunc McLellan and Brian and Danielle Aziz.

Sister-in-law of Victor /Florine Aziz (both deceased), Fred /Gladys Aziz and Sylvia/Don McGeein (deceased). Barb will be sadly missed but lovingly remembered by her many friends and relatives. She was a wonderful friend to many and she enjoyed life to the fullest. Barb will be greatly missed by her long time best friends Eddie and Betty Escaf and Evelyn Webster. Barb was born into a very large family in Toronto, Ontario on June 9, 1931. As the eldest of 7 children, she lived a full and happy life, moving with her family during the war and finally settling in London, Ontario. Barb met the love of her life, Mitch, on a blind date and was hooked! Her love of children was evident in her own large family. Barb always had an open door for anyone needing a hug, a laugh or a good meal. Barb was a lover of fine art and spent many years as a member of the Women's Committee of the London Regional Art Gallery. Over the years, Barb volunteered in London at many charitable and political organizations and was an avid bridge player. A devoted mother and grandmother, she was passionate about everything she did. Barb was well known for her great pies and preserves and wonderful Sunday dinners! In the early 1970's, Barb started one of the very first children's consignment clothing stores - "Second Time Around" and worked tirelessly to help those who could not help themselves. Her laughter and the sound of her whistling will remain forever in our hearts. In keeping with Barb's wishes, we request that cheerful colours be worn to her funeral. Our thanks to all of the staff and friends at McCormick Home in London for providing wonderful care and compassion in Barb's final years. Donations to the Alzheimer Day Program of the McCormick Home Foundation, Alzheimer Society London & Middlesex or London Health Sciences Foundation in lieu of flowers would be greatly appreciated.
