I was so sorry to hear about Barbara. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. May your memories bring you comfort. Nancy Nevels, January 4, 2015 Have such fond memories of Barbara. She was quiet the lady. Loved her personality. Sorry I was unable to attend the service. My regards to the family. Teresa Gray, December 31, 2014 I have so many memories of Aunt Barbara from when our families would visit over the years. She always would take charge and nothing would phase her. Debbie and I especially enjoyed having her and Uncle Bob visit us in Minnesota. Our sympathies. David Allen, December 29, 2014 Aunt Barbara was always an insiration to us growing up. She was always full of energy and laughing. Even though her home was already full of kids, she always had room for one or four more. She will be missed. Tom Allen, December 29, 2014 My childhood would have been completely different without this wonderful woman and her family. I have many memories of her--Bluebirds, driving to Kansas in the big van, spending the summer with the family when Barbara taught me how to iron, and so many more. She always had a smile and a hardy laugh. I know she was loved by many and will be missed. Nancyanna Crosthwaite Van Denover, December 28, 2014 I attended Elementary Camp with Barbara at Lake Bridgeport. I was a counselor, and Barbara was our Grandma in Residence. She was a wonderful asset to our camp, the children loved her as did the adults. She was a fine Christian woman, and will always be remembered. Beverly Birdwell, December 27, 2014
