Such wonderful memories of Mrs . Groscop and our St Matthew’s/Pioneer days. Hanging sleeping bags on lines to dry, wearing plastic bags on our feet with rubber bands around our ankles, foil dinners, Sunday night pizza at Nick’s (boy do I miss that!), basketball tournaments in Wisconsin, and the list goes on and on. She was a woman of God and had a beautiful voice. I still can remember her singing The Lord’s Prayer. Always a positive, can do attitude no matter the challenge. My deepest sympathy to the entire Groscop family and continued thoughts and prayers from this transplanted Chicago girl.

Dear Don and family
It is with great sadness to learn of Barbie’s passing. Our friendship goes back to the days of Danly Machine when we were single, needless to say it’s difficult to say goodbye after so many years and so many memories. Seeing our kids grow up, all the dinners we had together, all the laughter and comparing notes on our cabins. She will be missed by everyone who knew her and her smile will always be remembered. May she Rest In Peace. With much love Sandra and Herb Wilcox

My husband and I met Barb and her family on a hiking trail in glacier national Park 44 years ago. A strong bond of friendship was formed immediately. We watched their children grow, get married and have children of their own. Barb and don watched us get married and have our own children . Barb and don are godparents to our son, Justin. They were not just friends but family. Our family lost a very special person. We are so blessed to have had this kind, elegant and wonderful woman in our lives. Barb was an inspiration to me and will be missed more than she will ever know

To Don and the Groscop Family,

I met Barb at Nielsen and loved working with her. She was a positive lady to be around and made you feel that no matter what, you could do it!

She loved her family dearly and was so proud of all of them. The stories she shared of all the great outdoor adventures were wonderful.

Heaven gained a beautiful angel.

I’m so sorry for your loss. I used to work with Barbara at Nielsen. She was a special lady and kind person. I truly enjoyed working with her on a daily basis. I wish we would have stayed in touch. God bless all of you. Heaven gained another angel.

Such fond memories from St Matthews days. Pizza at Nicks on Sunday nights, basketball trips, camp outs with rain, lots of rain, and so so many more. Mrs. Groscop always looked beautiful, not a hair out of place, lipstick on with the we can tuff this out attitude. She was a role model for all leaders, always positive and encouraging. Deepest sympathy to all and continued thoughts and prayers from North Carolina.

To the Groscop family,
I am so sorry to hear of Barbara’s passing.
I met her at the cabin in Wisconsin a few years back, I just remember her as a very warm and welcoming lady. Her love of her husband and family was so apparent. She also had a wonderful sense of humor!
My deepest sympathy to Don and her children and grandchildren.
