When Barbara was Director of Human Resources at "Little" Aetna, I was privileged to work with her. She was very well-respected by everyone in the company - knowledgeable, fair, and caring about her staff and employees. A great teacher with the gift of common sense and the ability to help people see the right answer. When the company was closing down, she made it her personal challenge to find jobs for just about everyone in the home office! We kept up a correspondence and I was pleased to receive a lovely note from her about a year ago. May she rest in peace.
