Sorry to hear of Barb's passing. She was a classmate and I was pleased to be in touch with her while contacting alums for our high school class reunion last year. Sympathy and prayers go out to friends and family. Marjorie Ditzler Hillmann, April 1, 2020 I was so sorry to hear about Barbara's passing, as you might know she was my classmate and friend in high school. I'm glad I was able to have a conversation with her at my sister's funeral in Grinnell last year. Barbara was someone I always admired very much. Prayers to you all. Donna (Lauber)German and Larry German, April 1, 2020 I saw Barbara last March in Grinnell for my sister's funeral(Berneice Fritz). We had a nice visit.
