Obituary of Barbara Grant Horner (nee Wallace)

In hospital on June 4, 2021, Barbara Grant Horner (nee Wallace).  Beloved wife of Jamie Horner.  Survived by daughter Dr. Moyra Horner (Rick Green) and Grant Horner (Gail Norton), sister Flora (late Richard Souper) and brother Robert (Rosalind).  Predeceased by parents Flora Grant and Robert Wallace and infant sister Anita.


Barbara was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1938 and came to teach music in Shawville in 1964.  She moved to the dairy farm with Jamie in 1968 and then to Shawville in 1998.  She very much enjoyed the students she had the opportunity to interact with over the years and loved to hear how music lived on in their lives after school. Barbara and Jamie had many wonderful travels together.  Unfortunately she was diagnosed with Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinemia 13 years ago and fought it almost to the end, finally succumbing to other complicating factors.


A private family service will be held in Hayes Funeral Home Chapel on Tuesday, June 8, 2021 at 11 a.m. followed by interment in Norway Bay Cemetery.  Donations to the Bristol Memorial Presbyterian Church would be appreciated.
