Barb was a great classmate and very sweet person. Had a great smile.  She was always gentle with everyone. Sad loss.

Such a sad ending for a beautiful person. We weren't close, but I remember her as a bubbly, happy lady.

May she rest in peace.

     So sorry to hear of Barb's passing.  She was a good friend at SHS.  Like most, we went our separate ways after high school but I did get a chance to visit with her at our last reunion and for that I am thankful.  She was always so poised and gracious.  May she rest in peace.

So very sorry to hear of Barb's passing. At our last reunion, we did speak to each other and she mentioned she was not healthy. A classy lady with a beautiful smile. RIP Barb

I am so glad I had the opportunity to talk with Barb at our last reunion.  She was a such a sweet girl with a wonderful personality.  I know she suffered with her health and the loss of her girls, but she joins them now with no more suffering.  May she rest in peace.
