Barbara Jean (Horne) Roos A...

Barbara Jean (Horne) Roos April 4 1921 - July 10 2017 It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Barbara Roos at Kingston Ontario in her 97th year. Barbara was born in Sudbury, Ontario to Robert and Fanny Horne and spent most of her childhood in the town of Forest, Ontario. She had one sibling, her twin brother Robert. Barbara graduated from Victoria Hospital School of Nursing in 1943. It was while training in London, Ontario that she accepted a blind date and met the love of her life, Robert Peter Roos. The two were married May 26, 1945, and would remain together for over 68 years until Bob's passing in September of 2013. They resided in Cambridge, Ontario, and in retirement spent many months each year at their beloved cottage at Big Gull Lake. The last two years, Barb lived in Kingston. Barbara was a devoted mother to Peter (Charlene), John (Nancy), Katherine, Tom (Anna) and Susan. She was Granna Rosie to Ginia (Lucas), Jacob, Kristy (James), Alden (Tracy), Angie (Jonathan), Galen (Allison), Zeke (Clare) and Karri (Adrian), and eight great grand-children (Dallas, Ari, Will, Hudson, Henry, Violet, Natalie and Ava). She was also much loved by many nephews and nieces and their partners and children. One of her great pleasures was sharing in singing at family gatherings and for many years in the Central Presbyterian Church choir in Cambridge. Many people there will be saddened at her passing, as will her longstanding community of friends at Big Gull Lake. The family is grateful to the staff at Riverbend (Cambridge), and St. Lawrence Place and Rideaucrest Home (Kingston) for their care during Barb's last years. Memorial arrangements have not been finalized at this time.
