Sadly, I do not have a fond memory of Barbara, but the Follansbee clan are pretty much all related. Barbara sounds like she was a well rounded wonderful, Beautiful lady.
My prayers are with you David and your family. God Bless

I worked with Barbara at Blue Cross in the mid to late 80's and she was a generous lady. She excitedly offered to make my first son's birth sampler for me and explained how to do it. I've always thought of Barbara when I work on my own cross stitch projects.

I worked with Barbara at BC/BS and I will never forget how giving she was. One year she took her income tax return and hired a limo and took us girls that worked for her to Hampton Beach to see a group. We all had a good time. Rest in peace Barbara.

I worked with Barbara at Blue Cross Blue Shield in Concord for many years.
My son was born on November 30th as well, and Barbara was thrilled to be his very first babysitter! We were neighbors in Loudon.
Rest in peace Barbie!

I am so very sorry for your loss. I got to know Barbie while working at WalMart in the early 90s. Her talent as a seamstress was exceptional and I still have a Beautiful pink dress that she had made and gifted me. Rest in peace lovely lady, You will be missed.

I came to know Barbara from our book discussion group with the Richard Brown House. She was a vocal participant and not hearing her opinions on the book of the month anymore saddens me. I wish her family all the best.
