Barbara was so kind to me when I sought information from her a couple of years ago about her father-in-law, the architect, William Brown. We had a couple of delightful conversations and she promised to look out further information she might have in storage for me. I promised to try and meet her in Ohio (if that might be possible). But in the end––well, not. These were memorable conversations with a gracious, witty, and generous person. You, who are family, have lost a special person. My warmest thoughts to you all.

I Grew up in the 50's & 60's on Long Island, New York and enjoyed listening to the great songs of those times. I never met the Angels but I will never forget those wonderful times they brought to my life listening and dancing to their music.
Still listening to the Angel's great songs to this day. A piece of my past has died. My Sincere condolences to her family. May she rest in piece.......

When I was a teen in Ocala, Florida the Angels' 45 singles and the album MY BOYFRIEND'S BACK were a big part of my life and when I moved to Texas they remained part of my music life (and still are). Thank you Bibs for your contribution to my life.

Along with all her talents, Bibs was a wonderful neighbor. She lived next door to us or across the street for many years and truly she was a delight to know and be a neighbor of. Never a cross word, always upbeat. We will all miss her.
