I remember Barb well from both school and beyond. She used to bring her boys and camp at Sara's camp ground in Erie for a week each summer. I would go down and visit with her during those weeks. Last time I saw Barb was at one of our class reunions several years ago. I was sad when she started having health issues and lost her sight. It didn't seem to get her down however and she was still full of life. Even though I haven't seen her for several years I will miss her.

Barbara was my sister-in-law. But we met each other at church camp.
In fact, when I married her brother, Lawrence, she joked that she had slept with me before her brother did. Thinking about that, once again she was right.
I will miss Barbara. Her energy & kid like love of life. Email Aunt Nancy please.
I am very sorry you lost a mother, a grandmother, a friend.

Barb was such a delightful person! I can remember her happy smile as far back as the seventh grade.
