SMITH, Barbara Younice (nee Zinck)

Passed away peacefully on Saturday March 19, 2022, at Muskoka Landing Long Term Care home in Huntsville in her 88th year. Barbara (Barb) was born on April 12, 1934 in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia to parents Stewart and Alexis Zinck. She is the beloved wife of Robert (Bob) Smith of 64 years. Barb is the cherished mother of Charles and Peter and proud grandmother of Justin. Barb was a devoted wife and mother. She worked part time on the Federal census, then full time at the Hudson's Bay Company to help pay for orthodontics for Charles and Peter. She and Bob enjoyed international and domestic travel for 45 years. Barb loved the outdoors with family canoe trips around Algonquin Park, the family cottage on Toad Lake, as well as knitting, crafting, square dancing, Probus and of course her church. When not caring for her family, Barb volunteered in the community with the Huntsville Animal Shelter and Meals on Wheels. Our family would like to thank Dr. Forestell for his decades of care for our Mom, Dr Taylor, and more recently Dr. O'Halloran and the dedicated nurses and staff at The PInes, Muskoka Landing and Huntsville District Memorial Hospital.
