Barbara Kenmuir Obituary

Barbara Kenmuir, beloved mother and wife passed away on Tuesday, March 26, 2024, at the age of 74 years. Barbara's memory will be forever cherished by her husband, Gordon Kenmuir and son Christopher Kenmuir of Calgary.

Barbara also leaves behind her dearest aunt, Bronia Czyzewska and cousins in both Preston, England and Calgary, AB. Barbara was predeceased by her parents Franciszek and Maria Kohut and son, Robert Michael Kenmuir.

Barbara was born on August 30, 1949, in London, England. She married Gordon Kenmuir in 1976, in Calgary. Barbara earned her Bachelor of Education Degree at the University of Calgary and was an elementary teacher, mostly Grade 6, for 32 years.

Barbara loved teaching and her students; she always went the extra mile time and time again, to ensure their success. Many students came back years later to visit her and asked about her. Recently one of her former students reached out after 30 years, to come to see her and to thank her, which was a very humbling experience for Barbara.

Barbara loved travelling throughout her life. Some of the countries she visited were Australia, New Zealand, Portugal, Greece, Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore, Poland, Scotland, Norway, Netherlands and many more.

Barbara will always be remembered for her love of God, family and charity.
