Barbara will always be known for her wonderful sense of humor, quick wit, and infectious laugh. She had an amazing willingness to give of herself wherever and whenever it was needed, she was a true friend that could always be called upon in a time of need. No one could ever ask for more in a wife or a mom, she gave with everything she had and loved as hard as she possibly could. Barbara has left behind so very many memories on the countless lives she has touched, and we thank her for that so much more.
