January 5, 1938 – March 17, 2022
In loving memory ~
Barbara Ann Wilson was called home on March 17, 2022 to be reunited with her late husband James Wilson.
Barb was born in Moncton, NB on January 5, 1938 to George & Helen Jones. At the age of 8 the family moved to British Columbia where George worked as a cook in several logging camps before planting roofs in Port Alberni where Barb was able to finish her schooling. At the age of 18 she got a job with the Plywood’s where she worked for several years before pursuing her passion and love for animals.
In the sixties, Barb’s love of animals flourished when she got her first Keeshond. She then went on to opening Klitsa Kennels, Klitsa Pet Shop and finally The Barking Spot.
Barb was a respected lifetime member of the AV Kennel Club, Canadian Kennel Club, Keeshond Club of BC and Canada. Her Keeshonds were well known as Top Quality Champions.
In her free time her enjoyment came from her beloved dogs, feeding her Koi fish and gardening.
Barb is predeceased by husband James Wilson, parents George and Helen Jones, brothers George and David Jones. She is survived by sister Gloria Jones, brothers James and William Jones as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank the staff at West Coast General Hospital for the love and care through this difficult time.
Gloria would like to give thanks to the family and friends who have been there for them before and after her passing. Dale & Lisa Mangles, Lisa Trombley and family, Irene Austin, Al & Noreen and Ron Green.
A special thank you to our devoted nephew Cory Jones and his family Lora & Wyatt Jones. My brother James and his son Ryan and my daughter Alana for always being there for me.
There is no service per her request. Cremation has taken place at Yates Funeral.
