Barb was a wonderful lady! I have known her all my life. I lived across the street from her until I was married. She was a very friendly person and loved children. Not only her own, but all children. She babysat my daughter when she was just 4 months old, when my Dad passed away! She will surely be missed by all who knew her. My deepest sympathy to Sam, Chip, Lori, Teresa, and Barbie and all their families.
