It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Barbara Reycraft of Merlin on August 5, 2021.  She leaves behind her only daughter Leanne Hunter.

Barb was the daughter of the late Irene & Harold McCracken and sister of the late Raymond Tasker.  She is survived by her brother Harold McCracken Jr and sisters-in-law Ruth Tasker, Kristina Ritchie and Margaret Blair.  She will also be missed by many nieces and nephews.

Barb’s loves in life were crocheting and going to Lodge meetings with her close friend Helen Coatsworth.  She was a member of the Comet Rebekah Lodge for 42 years where she held the office of Noble Grand and District Deputy President.  Over the past few years she enjoyed spending time with her cousin Linda Weaver reminiscing over the good old days.  She was happy just to stay at home and care for her fur grandbabies.

Our family is devastated by her loss but will continue to keep her in our hearts and memories forever.  She will be remembered privately by her family at this time.

For friends and family who wish to honour her life with a memorial donation, we kindly ask that you consider the O.S.P.C.A. or the Pet & Wildlife Rescue.
