Aunt Barbara will truly be missed so very much. She always put a smile on your face even when she may not have realized it. She had a heart of gold and was a lot of fun to be around. We spoke on the phone weekly and she always kept us updated on family and what was going on and laughed about things from years back. She brought much joy because she loved everyone and always shared by visits and her willingness to help in any way that she could. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. We will meet again and look forward to our visits again.
Love, Debbie, Ruth, Charles and Kathi

Few people have the generous and loving heart like Ms. Barbara. There will always be an empty pew at Immaculate Conception, and in many hearts. May God reward her for her good life. May she Rest In Peace. Love and prayers, Paul and Susan Barnett
