Barbara Ann “Bar” Parker (nee Marriott)

Mar 25, 2018
People visit and enjoy, but no bulldozers have organized this place. I sit in the sand to remove shoes and roll up slacks and, this time, watch a great blue heron standing in the high tide, its head lit by the sun resembling nothing less than the blue green of the top of the Vancouver Hotel. Further out a cormorant balances on a rock, which isn’t easy as the waves keep bashing in. – Bar Parker, Vancouver Sun Aug. 1, 1992.

We said goodbye to Barbara “Bar” Ann Parker, age 86 (nee Marriott) on March 25, 2018. She is predeceased by parents Sidney Herbert “Bert” Marriott and Barbara Ann Marriott (nee Duncan) and her aunt, Margaret Stevenson (nee Duncan).
