In Loving Memory Of

Barbara Bateman


Barbara Bateman, born April 22, 1956 in Winnipeg, MB left us way too soon at the age of 59 on Tuesday, July 28, 2015, while residing temporarily in Douglas, Arizona.

She is survived by her beloved husband Dwayne, who remained the love of her life for over 32 years. Their life journey took them into an adventure of love that explored the world geographically, socially, culturally and spiritually. She is survived by her daughter Joleen and son Kennan of Grande Prairie. Her grandchildren Andrew, Colby, Presley and Zoey meant the world to their cherished grandmother, “Tutu”.   She is also survived by her mother Claudette McGee of Edmonton and siblings Bruce McGee (Georgeann McInerney) of Canmore, Danielle Nichols of Sherwood Park, Fr. Mark McGee of Grande Cache, Fr. Kevin McGee of Saskatoon, Colin McGee (Laurie) of Sherwood Park and Susan McGee of Edmonton; and Dwayne’s siblings from Calgary: Susan, Brian, Jack, Larry and Donna. She will be sadly missed by a large extended family of numerous nieces and nephews, cousins, aunts, an uncle and caring in-laws.

Barb was a warm and loving person who was always ready to greet others with a hug that expressed total acceptance and unconditional love. To those who loved her, Barb was a source of strength and support, our “rock”. Though often quiet, her love was strong, and in this way she helped make this world a better place.

Barb was predeceased by her Father Stuart McGee (1974), brother Darren McGee (1982), Darren’s son Jason (1981) and step-brother Glen (Pat) McGee. 

A Prayer Vigil service will be held Thursday, August 6, 2015 at 7:00pm at Oliver’s Funeral Home in Grande Prairie (10005 107 Ave).
