Obituary of Barbara Vivian Montemurro
Barbara Vivian Montemurro (nee Martin) 1938-2021. With profound sadness the family of Barb Montemurro announce her passing on January 11, 2021 from Covid. Barb was the proud mother of Sharon English Coffey (the late Paul) and Scott Montemurro (Donna). She adored her grandchildren Stephanie (Chris), Sara (Brady) and Suzanne (Dan) and her great grandchildren Abby, Sophia, Julia, Lucas, Madilyn and Gabriella. She was Auntie Barb to Margaret and Scott and stand-in Mom and Grandma to too many to list. Barb was an extraordinary Toronto Argonauts fan and season ticket holder for over 70 years. ARGOOOOOOS!!! Her legacy as an advocate for people living with disabilities ran deep and will be truly missed. For over 40 years, Barb volunteered with the Ontario Wheelchair Sports Association (OWSA), The Canadian Wheelchair Sports Association (CWSA) and Wheelchair Rugby. She also volunteered for the Georgetown Accessibility Committee. She was a significant contributor to the growth of these organizations. She was honoured with many awards including induction into the OWSA Hall of Fame in 2008. At her request, there will not be a funeral, instead a Celebration of Life will be held at a future date. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Ontario Para Network. www.onpara.ca.
