Stewart and Katherine,

I was so sorry to hear of Barbara's death. I will always cherish the memories of Barbara as we grew up together in Durham, Oklahoma. Those years were full of laughter, discovering new things, playing pranks on halloween, swiping watermelons, learning to dance, and even having a beer or two. Those memories also continued at Oklahoma State University.

My most recent fun memory was with my son, Trey and my grandson, Dane, having dinner with Barbara and Pat at the Cattleman Restaurant in the Oklahoma City Stockyards when my grandson was introduced to "lamb fries" and the laughter that followed when he was told what they were.

Just know that a very special person to me has left a big hole in my life and she will be greatly missed. So many memories!!

God Bless -

Winston Shindell

I played in a bridge group with Barbara for a number of years. She was always a wonderful hostess when playing in her home. Barbara was a wonderful lady to know and so enjoyed her friendship. When I think of Barbara I think of a kind gracious fun lady.
My sympathy to her family and may your happy memories give you comfort.

Dear Stewart and Kathryn,

Your mother embodied unconditional love. I am sure I frustrated her often, but she was always forgiving and supportive. I recently retired from teaching after 36 years in the classroom, and I will always fondly remember the years your mother and I taught together. She was such a wonderful mentor! She was so patient. She always encouraged her students to believe in themselves. I don’t think she ever raised her voice. She had a funny little laugh that escaped her lips whenever someone made a controversial remark, but her professionalism kept her from revealing her own thoughts on the matter at hand. She was truly a class act.

She was so proud of the two of you and of Matt, Andrew, and Elizabeth. She just beamed when she spoke of her family.

She saw me through cancer, sending me off to M.D. Anderson with her Bible and a list of verses to accompany it. I returned the Bible, but I still have the list. My husband recalls her coming out to car while I was inside the school making final preparations to leave for Houston. She leaned in the car window and confidently stated, “She is going to be okay.” He needed to hear that right then. He will never forget that moment. We will certainly never forget her....

With love,


2 Timothy 2:24 And the Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, 25 correcting his opponents with gentleness
