    What a wonderful tribute from PJ Kwong.

    Rest in peace, Barbara Ann Scott.

    Thanks for this. Some days I feel like nobody is listening. She is the first person of all the interviews I've done to have passed away. So right now I'm feeling very grateful that I'm doing what I'm doing to help preserve their voices and stories.

    I really hope everyone can listen to this one since she really was wonderful.

    I've listened to many of the podcasts and really enjoy them, thanks!

    That Barbara Ann Scott interview was enlightening and at times a hoot. A very elegant lady with a wonderful sense of humor.

    manleywoman, I'm continuing to support the podcast.
    I hope that others will be able to do the same.

    I'm grateful for the effort and care that make them so special.

    I just loved the videos. The gallery was amazing, and I didn't realize that Barbara was on What's My Line.

    Barbara Ann Scott is the first skater I remember. It was an ice show at Madison Square Garden shortly before she retired. Hollywood Ice Review maybe? She was brought out on the ice in a cage.
    Never mess with a geocacher. We know the best places to hide a body....

    My greatest memory of Barbara Ann was at the airport after Vancouver worlds in 2001. It was about 5am and she and her husband strode into the international terminal immaculately dressed with a red suede suit and cap with a cape around her shoulders. Worlds in London will not be the same without her.

    For those with access to CBC, on tonight's "National" there will be a special item on Barbara Ann. It's being promoted in the early evening network shows.

    In 1949 Barbra Ann performed at a skating show in St Andrews NB. In appreciation the province her a china tea set that had only been used for the Royal Visit of King George and Queen Elizabeth in 1939.

    A few years ago, she donated it back to the province, and CBC interviewed her. They replayed the interview today. She will be missed.
