It is with great sadness that the family announces the death of Barbara Ann Milburn, age 70, wife of the late Ashley Milburn of Springfield, NB, on Tuesday, May 7, 2019, at the Saint John Regional Hospital. She was born August 18, 1948, the daughter of the late Fred and May (Northrup) Armstrong.
Barb was quick to laugh, and her door was always open to friends and family alike. An expert knitter, Grammie made sure that grandkids and everyone she loved always had warm feet and fingers.
She is survived by sons Darren Milburn and his wife Pamela of Springfield, NB, Derrick Milburn and his wife Jana Trembinski of Ottawa, ON; beloved grandchildren Jillian, Liam, Natalie, Sam, and Jude; sisters Gladys Wies, Faye Pearson (Bill); brother Bill and sisters-in law Elly (Sandy) and Phyl, dear friend Kim and cat Muffin; several nieces, nephews and cousins. She was predeceased by her sisters Pauline Defazio, Florence Duffy and brothers Jim, George and Cal.
The family will receive visitors Friday, May 10 from 1-3PM at Sherwood’s Funeral Home and Life Tribute Centre, (506-839-2156) 18 Scovil Road, Norton. A private family service will be held later.
