It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our wife and mother Barbara Margaret (Chappell) Johnson, 82, of Sackville.  Barbara passed away peacefully at the Drew Nursing Home on Thursday, December 22, 2022, where she had resided for the past 7 years.

Barb leaves behind, her dedicated and loving husband of 66 years, Ben Johnson of  Sackville; her sons, Boyd (Jeannette) of Moncton, Todd of Sackville and Andrew of Moncton; four grandchildren, Marcus, Megan, Shelby, and Steven, and two great grandchildren; her sister, Gail (Eric) Estabrooks, as well as her brothers, Clifford "Kippy" (Thelma) Chappell, and Robert Eagles, a sister-in-law, Viola Chappell, many extended family members and several nieces and nephews.

Besides her parents, Barbara was predeceased by a daughter, Deborah in 1972, and a brother, Wayne Chappell.

Barbara grew up in Dorchester and then moved to Sackville where she worked at the Sackville Hospital, she then went to work for Borden’s Restaurant, after leaving there she moved on to The Drew Nursing Home, where she trained/worked with a lot of the ladies that have been caring for her in her last years.  Barbara’s last employment was doing some home care before she retired.  

Barbara was a very hard worker, an amazing cook and housekeeper.  She enjoyed doing crafts, camping, and  she had a real green thumb for gardening, especially when it came to her African Violet collection.  She also attended & spent a lot of time volunteering at St. Anne’s Church.

A sincere thank-you to The Drew Nursing Home and all the wonderful staff that cared for Barbara during the past 7 years, in particular those who comforted us in her last few days.  You are ALL AMAZING.

Donations in memory of Barbara may be made to the Westcock Cemetery.  

Arrangements are under the care and supervision of Jones Funeral Home, 70 Bridge Street, Sackville (506-364-1300).  Cremation has taken place.  Celebration of Life to take place  at St. Ann’s Anglican Church, Westcock, NB on Saturday, January 7th, 2023 at 11 a.m..  Reception to follow in the church hall.
