Saying Goodbye to a Friend

Posted: February 23, 2012
On February 17, 2012, our dear friend Barbara Savage passed away at her home in Oakville.

For forty years, Barbara was a respected and admired nurse educator at OTMH. Her many accomplishments include launching the first diabetes education program at the hospital, coordinating the candy striper volunteer program, and coordinating the staff education program at OMTH.

After her retirement in 1993, she went on to serve as the president of the OTMH Alumni Association and the vice-president of the Oakville Historical Society.

She will be remembered for her many outstanding contributions to our community including her high standards for nursing care, her deep appreciation of the history of Oakville and the conservation of its heritage and her passionate support of the new Oakville Hospital campaign.

On behalf of Halton Healthcare Services and the Oakville Hospital Foundation we offer our deepest condolences to her family and her many friends.
