I could write a book on this family. North Lawrence was while I was teaching was my second home.Barbara was always a great advocate for me is school matters. She always wanted to know how her kids were doing and wanted 100% from them. I never saw her without a smile.She will be greatly missed here on Earth but the nice thing about Barbara is she left us with great memories to hold on to until we see her again. May God give all of you she left behind the knowledge that she was loved by many and I am proud to say I was one.

Fred and family,

I was saddened to hear of Barbara’s passing. It has been years since I have seen all of you but I treasure the memories of riding Major on Maiden Lane and seeing you or stopping to visit. May your memories comfort you and keep you until you meet again in Heaven.

Barbara was such a good caregiver to our children when we worked evenings. Always knew they were in good hands. So sorry for your loss..
