May fun times bring some comfort to friends and family in their great loss. Many years ago Barbara brought comfort and help to me when not much help was available. I saw her in a store and we exchanged hugs this past summer in Greensburg. May she rest in God's kingdom now. ❤

Barb was a great pet sitter! She loved taking care of animals! She would write detailed account of her dog sitting with our precious Chili. Prayers to her family.

We had lots of fun times and memories. I will never ever forget her . My mom is very upset because she also got to know her and liked her immediately. So I would like her family to know she did have friends where she lived and we loved her. I just know that she is no longer suffering and that is the only good thing about her being gone . Know that I will be praying for her family and friends . Good bye Barb you will be missed.

Loved making great entertainment and memories with Barb in Tree County Players.
Her standout performance to me was as the joyful Spirit of Christmas Present.
(Including her patience for the application of her surreal make-up)
