Una Barbour

March 10, 1935-Sept. 27, 2013

Una Barbour, age 78 years, passed from us peacefully in her home on Sept. 27, 2013. 

She was born on March 10, 1935, in Bangor, County, Northern Ireland, to John and Janet Brierly. She married James Barbour there in January 1958, and they emigrated to the United States after their wedding. 

They lived in Alameda and San Leandro, California, where their two sons were born, Lindsay in 1961 and Scott in 1971. The family moved to Brookings in 1991 and Una made many friends here in the area. She was well-known for her delicious Scotch shortbread which she learned to make from her Scots mother. Her husband Jimmy and son Lindsay preceded her in death. Her son Scott survives. Her family and her many friends will mourn her passing. 

At Una’s request, there will be a private service held at a later date.
