In loving memory of a wonderful Mum, Grandma, Great-Grandma, Sister, Auntie and Friend. Barbara, who sadly passed away at home on Saturday 7th September 2019, was very much loved and treasured by all and will be greatly missed by family and friends. Barbara, nee Cotton, originally from South Normanton moved to Blackwell when she married William (Bill) James and started their family before moving to Newton where she has lived for the last 50 years. Barbara worked for many years as a sewing machinist and since her retirement she has enjoyed much quality time with her family and is well-known for walking miles and miles with her beloved dog Emmy.

Barbara fought her illness fiercely with determination and courage and found so much strength in the support from her loved ones, from the team at NGS Macmillan Unit Chesterfield and the Palliative team from Ashgate Hospice.

Barbara's funeral will be held at Mansfield Crematorium on Friday 20th September 2019 at 11:15 and she wishes for donations to be made to Macmillan and Ashgate Hospice rather than floral tributes. All are welcome to join family at Newton Community Centre after the service to celebrate Barbara's life.

Barbara's family wish to thank you for your support and condolences at this very sad time.

Mamma b / our barb / my bestie!..
Just a short message for my booooootiful human ..
No words can describe our pain.. no words can describe our loss.. and no words can describe our Love!..
We have a very big empty black hole our barb..
And no words can describes how much we miss you 💞..
You are now actually in a world where you belong .. with all the other great angels.. instead of in this cruel world of pain..
You have been my ultimate side kick and I don't know what I would have done at times with out you!..
I'm struggling at the moment as you always gave me the strength.. my strength is weak with out your smiling booootiful face to touch.. but I can assure you my love still has the same amount of strength in my heart.. even though it feels broken and that will never change..
But as we all have a piece of you living in us then that strength will go on!..
Enjoy your new world mamma .. as our world will never be the same!!!! 💔💔💔💔💔...
We loved you then.. we love you now and we always will 💞..
Sarah /keely/billie-ann/Blake/paisley 🖤🖤🖤 xxxxxx
