Mom. Where do we even begin? You were a complex woman filled with fire and spice but also love and gratitude. You lived your life wide open and the way that you wanted. Friends describe you as generous, loving, fun, life of the party, and my favorite, awesomely strong friend. You were quick to help someone in need, strangers and friends alike.

You were the definition of a Jersey Girl and wore that label proudly. Life threw many obstacles your way and you approached each and every one as a challenge and faced them with grace, dignity, and faith. Faith that you would prevail. and you did. every time.

Your love of the Jersey Shore was infectious; memories of laughter, friends, fun, and love bring a smile.

You could be difficult.. boy could you… but a nice glass of red and a conversation later, all was well. You needed to know that your children would be ok without you, and because of your teachings of independence, love, determination, strength, and sense of family, we will be ok. we will prevail.

Right up until your last breath, you did it your way.

Cheers Mom, we’ll see you on the beach.

I was sad to learn of Barbara's passing. I knew Barbara from water exercise class at The Heritage at Lowman Wellness Center. We enjoyed each other's company exercising and playing volleyball in the pool until last March when things changed for all of us. She spoke so lovingly of her family. My sympathy to you all at your loss.

I am so very sorry for your loss. She was a very sweet and fun lady. My family benefited from her expertise in Mexican Train and for that I am grateful. Prayers for you all in the days to come.
