Barbara was a warm and kind person. I was honored to work with her at Fillmore Elementary School for 5 years. She taught me a lot about kids. She was a wonderful teacher that went above and beyond to do for her students. I don't think there was a a kid that she didn't understand. I loved Barbara! I will miss her greatly!

Barb was a mentor, a soundboard, and an inspiration. She never let her troubles steal her smile even on the days I know were tough. She was always willing to help and her generous spirit and kind nature will be thoroughly missed. Fly with the Angels.

Barb was a sweetheart. Even as she fought her health battles she continued to teach and advocate for her kids. Even when you knew she had to give a tremendous effort just to be there, she rarely missed a day. She always had a smile when she came into the library to visit for a minute. Technology was not her friend so she would seek me out for assistance which I gladly gave. She was always so appreciative. She is missed and loved by all at Fillmore.
