Barbara Munves

1930-2019

Barbara Munves
Barbara Patricia Parsons Munves died suddenly at Whisperwood Villa last Saturday evening, she had lived there following the death of Jim Munves, her husband of 45 years, last September. Jim and Barbara were inseparable, they did almost everything together and while it was getting harder for both of them as they dealt with aging, Jim’s health and Barbara’s increasing dementia, Jim was her rock, her shelter and her home. With Jim gone it was easy to see that much of her interest in life had also left. In better days, Barbara was a stalwart member of the Island Peace Committee, a volunteer at the Humane Society, a published author and an avid singer in both the Confederation Singers and Saint Paul’s Anglican Church choir. She was an animal lover, a vegetarian, and a staunch environmentalist. Jim and Barbara gave generously to many Prince Edward Island charities. Many people will also remember the battle that Jim fought to bring Barbara home after she had been committed to a dementia unit in early 2018. They had some five months at home together ably supported by care-givers before Jim died and Barbara was once again in a nursing home. Barbara died peacefully and quickly, after a good day. She will be mourned by her Charlottetown friends and her step-daughters: Katherine Pearlman, Emily Chadbourne, and Margaret Munves. There will be no service, friends can remember Barbara by giving a donation to the Humane Society, taking a walk on the beach or in the woods, eating less meat and refusing to wear fur.
