    Cdn Nationals won't be the same...Sad news, she was a wonderful and charming role model/ambassador for skating and likely would have been very pleased to learn of Osmond's golden international performance debut before she passed; I had the good fortune to meet her in person, she will be greatly missed. RIP.

    What a loss...what a legacy!

    She loved and served the sport for a lifetime.
    That love radiated and spread to everyone she touched,

    RIP, to a great champion and greater lady.

    How sad to open up fsu and this is the first thing I see. She was truly a magnificent athlete, Canadian and human being. And she could rock a beaded gown too! RIP to a lovely lady.

    A figure skating legend, R.I.P.

    Here is a short but really nice clip of Ms. Barbara Ann Scott skating with Michael Kirby, part of the Hollywood Ice Revue "The Show with the Stars", circa 1953:

    Thanks Maofan for putting up the link. One of my favorite podcasts ever. She was so gracious, and as PJ Kwong said, surprised anyone would be interested in her story! A great legend who had a remarkable and full career and life. RIP.

    She gave me one too to keep for myself. I cherish it.
    In my spare time, I like to interview figure skating legends.

    Barbara Ann Scott King. She liked it when I called her Gramma and she gave such sweet hugs. Getting a Christmas card from her & Tom was ..
    .. like getting a card from skating royalty. To say she was special just isn't enough. She glowed and shared her light with everyone. XO

    I think she is was such a gracious and giving woman who never forgot her roots in Ottawa and always, always was giving back to the skating world and to our city. She had tried for a while to donate her skating memorabilia and Ottawa kept delaying it but it was done in August when she visited (likely due to her failing health).

    I will miss her smiling face which always lit up a room.

    I hadn't heard. What sad news for Canadian figure skating. She was gracious, beautiful...no words, everything good.

    Judy - she was originally scheduled to be here in Ottawa in July for the opening of the gallery at City Hall. Her trip had to be delayed as she was recovering from a hospitalization. I'm so pleased that she was able to make the trip and to see her precious items in their rightful place. She showed great humour and her usual humility on that trip. I'm sure no one expected that we would lose her so soon.

    I will always have fond memories of seeing her at Worlds in Calgary, dressed in her beautiful suits, in a different color every day, always set off by her lovely platinum hair. Actually, the first time I spotted her was boarding the connecting flight in Toronto. As I walked through first class to get to my seat in coach, I saw her and realized, "Wow, that's Barbara Ann Scott!" I really felt that was the beginning of that Worlds for me. She was indeed, first class.

    Oh no! Such sad news. She was a great champion and very much a lady.

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart, manleywoman, for getting that podcast before it was too late. We owe you a great debt of gratitude.

    RIP Barbara Ann Scott. You are a legend and you will be missed.
