Dates of existence


Barbara Verity, born in Montreal to Norman Verity (d. 1984) and Christena Bennett (d. 1991), has been deeply involved in the world of photo-journalism throughout her enduring career. Not only has Barbara's work appeared in multiple English newspapers, her dedication to this field extends beyond writing and photography, as shown by her editorial roles at the Sherbrooke Record from 1974 to 1977 and her subsequent editorship at the Townships Sun starting in 1988.

Barbara and her first husband, Kenneth Stevenson (d. 2018), had two sons, Scott, a well-known Townships writer, farmer and translator, who lives in Island Brook, and Gregory, who participated in the 1992 and 1996 Olympics as a rower and lives on Vancouver Island.

Graduating with a Master of Arts from Concordia’s Department of Communication Studies in 1989, Barbara has been author and co-author of several notable books. These include titles such as "A Community with Deep Roots Tenth Anniversary Commemorative Volume of Townshippers' Association" (1989), "35 Places to Cross-Country Ski in the Eastern Townships" (1996), "On the Move: An Outdoor Guide to the Eastern Townships" (1999), and "Even the Owl is Not Heard: David Thompson’s 1834 Journals in the Eastern Townships of Quebec" (2011).

Barbara is now living in Pointe Claire on Montreal Island near where she grew up in Lachine. She regularly visits the Eastern Townships where she is a long-standing member and former assistant director of Townshippers’ Association.
