Barb was very generous with her time and funds to various organizations to help those in need, as well as to her family and friends. Everyone that knew her noticed her sense of fashion, she was a very sharp dresser. She enjoyed shopping with her grandkids, traveling and spending time with family. Barb was a great wife, mother and grandmother who will be greatly missed.
The family would also like to thank Hickory Point Christian Village for their extraordinary care of Barb.
