I was so saddened to hear about Barb's passing. I will always remember her warm smile and the fun we shared at Curves.
She was such a sweet lady. My deepest condolences to you and your family during this very sad and difficult time.

I've known Barb since I was ten years old. Her daughter, Amy and I met at a cheerleading clinic just before fifth grade, and we were inseparable from that moment forward. Barb was like a second mother to me, and my teen years would have been drastically different without her. From Hamvention weekends at Hara to family dinners at Casa Lupita and Wahmee's and so much more, I'll always remember her smile, the sound of her infectious laugh, and her kind, welcoming heart. She made the world a better place, and I will miss her dearly.

Our deepest condolences to those she left behind, the best of women: a teacher, mother, wife, grandmother, daughter, sibling, aunt, friend — a humanitarian with a zeal for the life she lived. Rest in peace, Barb.

So many heartfelt condolences on Barb’s Facebook page, as well.
