GUSTAFSON, Barbara June
March 20, 1929 – Sept.17, 2012
During the morning sun of September 17th, 2012, Barbara June lost her long and courageous battle with cancer.
BJ was born and raised in Strasbourg, Saskatchewan. She graduated as a registered nurse from Regina General Hospital, and later married her high school sweetheart Nore.
A life in the military ensued, and together, BJ and Nore raised a family on military bases from Halifax to Comox. BJ enjoyed competitive and league play curling with friends and family. She was always present at her grandchildren’s sporting events and activities.
She was predeceased by her husband, Nore, in 1982 and son-in-law, Ed Moncrief, in 2009. She is survived by her children, Jim (Cindy) Gustafson, JoAnne (Art) Hobson, Bob (Val) Gustafson, and Greba Moncrief. Also left to mourn her passing are her grandchildren Steve, Bridget, Emily, Elliott, Aynsley, Andrew, Stuart, Sydney, and her 4 great grandchildren.
A special thank you to the VIHA Nurses, Home Support staff, and Doctor Harris. BJ’s family would also like to thank the entire staff at Berwick for their kindness and support during BJ’s time at Berwick
