Barbara was simply a good person and a GREAT friend. We will miss her very much! RIP sweet Barbara. PAUL VAUGHN, February 14, 2020 My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult period. Robert Sanchez, February 11, 2020 Beside her many accomplishments as a wife, mother and business lady, Barbara was also a part of the “welcoming committee/hostess with the mostest” for Madison Drive. It was God’s blessing to me to have landed next door to the greathearted Hamres and enjoyed six and a half years of friendship before His angels escorted Barbara to her eternal neighborhood. Strength, dignity, wisdom and joy were just a few of the qualities with which Barb was graced. She had a finely tuned ability to discern the heart of a matter and was master of the nearly-lost art of providing a gentle word (or a humorous rebuttal) when and where it was needed. My happy memories of Barb include her cheery greeting from the window whenever I was tackling an outdoor project, the way she played with and protected her grandchildren, her serenity in the face of her neighbors’ foibles, sincere compassion for others and a true green thumb with the flowers. But my fondest memory of this dear lady was the result of serendipity. Last summer, the two of us met each other outside from 11 to nearly midnight so that we could search the skies for the Perseids meteor shower. Turns out, Barbara was an amateur astronomer, too! We spent that hour watching the heavens and admiring the profound and exquisite work of our Creator. Barbara was certainly one of God’s best creations; a gentle lady made in His own image and whose life brought honor and glory to her Lord, Jesus Christ, delight to her husband, life and love to her children and sweetness to everyone who knew her. She will be sorely missed…until we meet again. “We do not live to ourselves, and we do not die to ourselves. If we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord; so then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s.” ~ Romans 14:7-8 Pam Johnson, February 10, 2020 We are so sorry for your loss. You are all in our thoughts & prayers. Praying for strength during this difficult time. God bless.

Andrea Andrea Hamre, February 5, 2020 My dearest Barbara, I am not going to say goodbye, but instead "Until We Meet Again!

Myrna Quinn, February 4, 2020 Our hearts are so sad over the loss of Aunt Barb. She was such a loving, genuine, and faithful woman. I will miss her smile and talks we would have at family reunions. She loved her family and we loved her. Rest In Peace Aunt Barb.
Kevin, Jean, Jason, and Jack Peterson, February 3, 2020 Gene and the entire family, You are in our thoughts and prayers. Barb was such a genuine person and will be truly missed. We will be there next week. Love Charlie and Val Meyer Charlie and Val Meyer , February 3, 2020 Uncle Gene, Phillip, Jonna, Hayley, Cathy and family, It breaks my heart that such a kind and loving woman has left us behind. She was blessed to have each of you in her life. Even though her time was cut short, she didn't have time to worry about the future and lived her life on her terms till the very end. May the Lord keep all of you and give you comfort in the days ahead. I wish I could be there with you, but will keep each of you in my thoughts and prayers. Love you all!
Virginia Skiles, January 29, 2020 Since the day I met Barbara she always treated me like family and included me in many Hamre family functions. I always enjoyed being in her company whether we were crafting wreaths, tailgating at Cowboys games, watching the horse races at Lone Star Park, enjoying fajita night and, of course, Hayley’s 21st birthday in Vegas. I’ll also never forget when she would come visit Hayley in San Marcos, because she would cook us the most delicious spaghetti & meatball dinner! More than anything I’ll miss sitting at her kitchen table and visiting with her for hours. Barbara will be deeply missed and I will never forget the love and kindness she always showed me.
