Due to the current social restrictions, public calling hours will not be observed and a celebration of Barbara’s life will be held at a later time. Sharing wonderful memories of Barbara, funny stories and laughs would be very meaningful for the family, who is encouraging those who knew Barb to leave those on

The family extends sincere appreciation to the friends and family who helped Barb while she was ill, especially her friends Becky Mallory and Mike Averill.
