Barbara Sim, 92, late of Trinity Manor, Saskatoon, passed away November 6, 2017. Born March 13, 1925 near Windthorst, Barbara graduated as an RN from the Regina Grey Nuns Hospital in 1947, and nursed in Regina, Estevan, and Weyburn. She married her best friend and love of her life, Norman Sim, on November 18, 1950, and began a long partnership farming in Gap View, Saskatchewan. Nearly fifty years later, they sold the farm, and built a new home in Regina. In 2011, they moved to Saskatoon to be closer to their family. Forever young, optimistic, an outstanding cook and gardener, and astute investor, she was a dedicated wife and mother above all else. Barbara was predeceased by her parents, Lucien and Esther Morange; her brothers, Joseph, Peter and John; and her sisters, Mary, Marguerite, Helene, Norma, Catherine, Isabelle and Simone. She leaves to mourn her beloved husband, Norman; son, Brian Sim (Maggie); daughter, Catherine Richards (Alun); and treasured grandchildren, Erin Sim (Jeremy Church), Kyle Sim, Kathrin Sim, and Bryn Richards (Jenna). A private family internment at Gap View Cemetery will follow at a later date.
