Irenë Barbara Daniel passed away peacefully in her own home at the age of 73 on Tuesday May 30, 2017.
She was born in Yorkshire, England and moved to Canada with her husband, David, in 1966. Barbara had many interests and hobbies, however her greatest passion was being a devoted and avid Girl Guide Leader and Trefoil Guild Member for over 50 years. One of her biggest joys throughout her service was in continuously supporting each individual girl she met; wanting nothing more than to see each girl grow and succeed. Barbara touched the lives of many Girl Guide Members over the years, making a lasting impact.
Barbara will always be remembered for her incredible effervescence and cheerfulness. She was always happy and laughing and made those around her feel truly loved and cared for. Her family knew she was always there for them, and her constant devotion to them was admired by those who knew her.
She is survived by her beloved husband of 51 years, David, daughter Julie, son Brett, sister Christine and granddaughters Abby and Emma.
The family will welcome visitors on Tuesday June 6, 2017 from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. at J. Scott Early Early Funeral Home, 21 James St., Milton (905) 878-2669. Messages of condolence may be left online at www.earlyfuneralhome.com
