<div itemprop="description">It is with heartfelt sadness that the family of Barbara Scott (nee Osborne) announce her passing at the age of 97. <br>Predeceased by her devoted and loving husband of over 63 years, Austin "Scotty", her brothers Alan and Clifford and loving parents Richard and Jennie (Frankland) Osborne, as well as many dear and close friends who became part of her family over the years. Barbara (Mom) remained strong, courageous and tenderly committed to life until the very end. <br> <br>Barbara had the innate ability to bring ease to whomever was in her company, child or adult. It was a natural and comforting feeling simply being around her. Always cheerful, and with a smile, Mom’s enduring kindness, family devotion and sweetness will live on through her children and grandchildren as legacies of love. Barbara enjoyed the simple pleasures in life such as cherry ice cream, gift shops, the ocean and many family summers spent in the salt air enjoying the blue hydrangeas and sand dunes of Cape Cod. Barbara was raised in Longueuil and Cote-de-Neige before marrying and moving to Pointe Claire, Quebec in 1961. Growing up, she enjoyed many summer days at the Osborne family cottage in Rawdon, Quebec, and on the golf course full of tall pine trees. The smell of pine was one of her favorites. Mom equally had a passion for winter months and Christmas where her spirit became magnified. She had a passion for hockey, starting with the Montreal Maroons, Les Canadiens and later on the Pittsburgh Penguins. Mom and Dad both enjoyed the outdoors and active family living and camping, bike riding and exploring at many oceans and lakes throughout North America finally settling on a summer retreat of their own on the shores of Lake Champlain, Vermont where they would return for decades. This was the place they watched their family and extended family grow and made many happy memories. <br> <br>Barbara will be lovingly remembered by her children, her daughters Sandra Anne and Catherine Lynn, as well as her two son in-laws Robert and Dimitri whom she adored. Her four granddaughters, Jessica, Victoria, Sydney and Olivia have been her greatest joy. She was there for every Holiday making Easter, Thanksgiving, Halloween and Christmas extra special. She never missed a birthday or graduation celebration and was always ready to make new memories. Barbara also loved photographs and her beautifully crafted albums are now cherished treasures. <br> <br>Barbara lived life to its fullest enjoying what each day had to offer, never complaining and always grateful. She was generous, forgiving and had boundless energy. Mom enriched the lives of others and made the world a better place by her eternal optimism and playful spirit. Mom’s love of the beach and sharing it with her family, created lasting memories for all of us. <br> <br>The Beach <br> <br> Come to the beach <br> Where the sea is blue <br> And little white waves <br> Come running to you. <br> <br> A wave comes splashing <br> Over your toes <br> You just stand still <br> And away it goes <br> <br> We’ll build a castle <br> Down by the sea <br> And look for shells <br> If you’ll come with me. <br> <br>Mom will be laid to rest with her loving husband Austin in the Field of Honour, Pointe Claire, Quebec. A private family gathering to say farewell and celebrate her beautiful life will be had in her honour.</div>
