Barbara Clark Obituary

Barbara “Barb” Clark , 67, of Taber Alberta, formerly of Neepawa Manitoba , passed away January 22, 2024, at St. Michael’s Health Centre in Lethbridge Alberta. Barb fought pancreatic cancer hard. With her daughter Brittany and sister Debbie at her side she passed peacefully. 

Born January 27th, 1956, in Neepawa, Manitoba, she was predeceased by her parents, Mabel and Gordon Welbourne of Neepawa, Manitoba and her brother Don Welbourne (Denise) from Hinton Alberta. 

Barb grew up in Neepawa on a farm with her 4 siblings. Graduating in 1974 from NACI, Barb then went on to gain a Business Office Certificate and worked in law firms for a short time. She then worked 2 decades at East View Lodge, and another decade at Hylife. She also spent a few years at Tim Hortons in Neepawa where she happily visited with many of the Neepawa residents. 

Barb was very involved in the Neepawa community and her neighbourhood making many lifelong friendships. She was 4-H leader for 15 years and spent 6 years as an instructor for the Junior Rifle Club.

Barb loved spending time in her flowerbeds and had a strong bond with her granddaughter Hailie. It was because of that bond that Barb decided to move out to Alberta to be closer to her. She bought a house with a large yard and took up employment at Taber IGA. Barb really felt at home in Taber with great relationships with her neighbours, coworkers, owners, and community. 

Barb will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Nicole Ryden (Koen); grandchildren Kennedy & Josh; daughter Brittany Clark (Pat); granddaughter Hailie; sisters Debbie Ford (Gorden), Carolyn & Ken (Wendy); brother Doug Welbourne; sister Heather Davie; Clinton (Kerri) ; Carter & Michael (Sarah) ; William & Julia.
