To the family of our Aunt Barbara, We are truly sorry for your loss. Will always remember the hospitality she showed when I came with my dad and mom to visit in the mid 1980. It was great meeting the extended family. Just know our prayer are with you at this time. God Bless.

Jo Ann Salter, daughter of her brother Joseph Stevens
