It is with heavy hearts that we share our loss and heaven’s gain, with the passing of Jane Barkey at Algonquin Grace Hospice on June 8, 2021. Jane left behind her husband of 59 years and love of her life, Gord Barkey, children Martin (Ginger), Graham, Christine (Mike), grandchildren, Amanda (Travis), Josh (Nicole), Jacob (Katelin), Derek (Jasmin), Krista, Griffin and sweet Sofia and great grandchildren, Olivia, Wesley, Scarlet, Bethy, Jude, Bella, Joe and Max. Jane is predeceased by her brothers, Don and Fred Hensler, and survived by her sister Carmen Laidley and brother Philip Maynard. Jane and Gord moved their family from the metropolis of Queensville to the solitude of the north, hand building their family home from logs from the property. Family was very important to Jane, especially her ‘babies’, celebrating each special birthday, graduation, anniversary, and holiday together, which brought her immeasurable joy. Jane had a heart for Jesus and lived her life loving on others; using a batch of muffins, a book, or simply listening to someone share their story as an opportunity to share the hope in Jesus. In addition to the family above, Jane had special relationships with so many other people, some lasting several decades and we recognize that they, too, will share in the grief of her passing. Jane’s family wishes to thank Dr Sheena Branigan & Dr Jen MacMillan with their excellent care of her this spring and to the team of angels at Hospice for loving so kindly on her in her final days. The family will have a private service at Faith Baptist church due to the current restrictions. In lieu of flowers, Jane requested that donations be made to The Table Soup Kitchen Foundation supporting the hurting, homeless and hungry in Huntsville and area communities.
