Written by ECA Review


It is with endless love that we announce the passing of Barbara Regina Schilling on Jan. 29, 2022. 

Barbara was born Sept. 17, 1923 in Cadomin, Alta. to Laurie and Regina Stiles.

Barbara married her hero, Charlie Schilling on Aug. 21, 1941. They celebrated 66 years together. To this union, seven children were born. 

Barbara’s most prized possession was her family and she was proud of the legacy they built together. 

She wanted to be remembered for her coffee pot always being on and for all her dear family and friends that dropped in at any time for a visit.  

Barbara will be missed and lovingly remembered by Joan (Stan) Broome, Chuck (Jean) Schilling, Doris (Ed) Fuchs, Glenna (Andy) Schuler, Morris (Lorna) Schilling and son-in-law Gordon Walker. 

From these children came 16 beautiful grandchildren, 35 great-grandchildren and 15 great-great-grandchildren.  

She was also survived by brother Harold (Anna) Stiles and sister-in-law Alma Alenius. 

Barbara will be reunited with her soulmate Charlie, daughter Yvonne Walker and infant daughter Dora Jean, brother Gerald Alenius and parents Laurie and Regina Stiles.

A celebration of Barbara’s life will be held in the spring of 2022.
