Barb Kramble Nightingale

Produced by the Nightingale family




June 14, 1971 – June 27, 2022

Our beautiful, loving, devoted, talented and caring wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, teacher and friend passed away peacefully at Riverview Hospital on June 27, 2022 with her family by her side.


Barb is survived by her husband Keith, her sons Isaac and Quinn, her brother Barry and her parents Barry and Diane Kramble as well as many loving friends and family.

Barb was born on June 14, 1971, to Barry and Diane Kramble and lived on Rosseau Avenue in Transcona along with her older brother Barry Jr. 

Grade school was a breeze for this ultra intelligent and extremely beautiful young lady. She finished high school with honors and managed to excel in sports and friendships. It didn't matter which sport from ringette, table tennis, basketball, volleyball, soccer or track and field, Barb was donning the C on her left shoulder, also picking up a few MVP honours or finishing first in individual sports. Friendships came naturally to her and were maintained by respect and her genuine ability to touch people's lives. 

She carried on her natural gift to touch lives and obtained 2 degrees - a Bachelor of Arts Honours and Bachelor of Education Honours at the University of Manitoba, which led to her teaching for over 25 years of inspiration and dedication to the River East Transcona School Division. She was loved by so many students. I have a closet full of thank you cards and gifts, ..... ah yes, some of them very creative, from kids who deemed her loving and caring!!!! 

Barb served on many Boards and Committees to help maintain what she believed in, providing a connection and hope to every child!! 

Barb married Keith Nightingale, in 1998 and had 2 awesome boys to follow, Isaac and Quinn. These boys would grow to be extremely loved and inspired by their mother!! She gave them so many experiences in life from Disney World 3 different times, to Annecy, France, or another successful weekend at the lake, to growing a caterpillar into a butterfly, to a kiss on the boys forehead every night before bed. 

Barb you will be so missed by so many people. Your family was so blessed to have had the time with you. As your husband I can only dream about you - your comforting voice, infectious laugh, always knowing what to say and your beautiful room lighting smile. 

You physically left this world too early but managed to leave so much love and inspiration for your family down here, YOU are going last FOREVER in our Hearts and Minds ! 

I will carry on our dreams and hopes for our boys!! You're going to be even prouder!!!! 
I Love you my "Everything"!!!
