Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
Barbara, You were an amazing lady & we admired your courage & strength throughout your trials. We were so blessed to have had you for our neighbor for so many years. You were never without a smile on your face and it surely was contagious! We thank God that you are no longer suffering with that dreadful disease and you are adding some more sunshine to those in Heaven. You were a great mom & it is so apparent to all who know Ronnie & Ben. You didn't leave this world in vain. You have left a beautiful legacy of being a great wife, mom, & friend to so many. You will surely be missed a lot. Love you Barb, Mary Lou & Duddy

When I think of Barbara, I have to smile because she was always smiling. She went through alot, and she's one of those inspirational people who made the best of it all. She will be missed.

Only knowing Barb for a short time, but growing up with Ron and speaking to him and Barb at the Chester's Firemens Carnival I could see what a special women and mom she was. She didn't deserve to have to go through such terrible disease. Rest in Peace Barb.
