Hard to believe Barbara left us so quickly. She was a gracious thoughtful friend sharing time with church, Bridge and get togethers. She will be missed but always remembered warmly with a willingness to help others. She loved her family and was so proud of them. Jo Ann F.

I will truly miss Barbara. I have cut her hair for years. We had so many wonderful conversations. She loved to travel and told me all about where she had gone, who she saw, what she did. She definitely enjoyed life and loved her family very much. She was such a sweet dear woman.

I will miss Barbara's visits on her way down to Gini's in Naples and sometimes on her way back. We had such a great time "catching up" on all that was going on in our families. We had not been "sisters-in-law for very many years, but we very much enjoyed the time that we had. My condolences to all her family whom she loved so much! Joyce Perry Wolfert
