Four Generations of Devoted Service
In the Selkirk area and Interlake Since 1935
Barbara Louise Niebel (nee Campbell)
With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Barbara Louise Niebel (nee Campbell). Barbara passed away peacefully at the Selkirk Regional Health Centre on September 11, 2018 surrounded by her loving family.
Barb was born on March 2, 1957 at Dauphin Hospital just 12 minutes ahead of her twin sister Beverley. Barb grew up in Dauphin, her childhood was filled with fun and adventure with her seven siblings, cousins and lifelong friends. Barb started her career in nursing graduating first as an LPN in 1976 and then as an RN in 1981. She married and was a busy mother raising her three children, Luke, Stephanie and Jake. Over her long nursing career she worked in Thompson, Winnipeg, Dauphin and Selkirk hospitals. She formed great working relationships and friendships with her co-workers. Barb's greatest joy was spending time creating memories with her close knit family. Her vivacious personality, unique sense of humour and generous heart made her a pleasure to be around. Barb always said that her children and grandchild Kaiden were her greatest gifts. She cherished every moment with them and kept treasured memories in her heart.
Barb is survived by her three children Luke, Stephanie and Jake along with her six sisters Maureen Fleury (Earl), Norma Parks, Beverley Savoie (Denis), Lori Telenko, Joan Campbell, Shelley Wait (Perry) and one brother Jim Campbell (Sharon). She will be missed by her cherished grandson Kaiden and her second "daughter" Mandy Katcher as well as her closest cousins Bev Smith and Sherry Hubka, and her long time friend Don Skrypnik. Barb adored every one of her 17 nieces and nephews and 18 great nieces and nephews and recognized something special in each of them. And they loved aunt Barb right back. Barb was predeceased by her mother Irene Campbell, her father Justin Campbell, her aunt Marion Campbell and her mother-in-law Emily Niebel.
Barb's unique personality, love for life and sense of humor will be sorely missed by all whose lives she touched. In lieu of flowers donations in memory of Barb may be made to CancerCare MB.
Forever in our hearts sweet Barbie. Till we meet again.
