Maureen Wenz Slaight

She was a force to be reckoned with. I think people saw her as meek and mild. She was, but she also was very compassionate to people important to her. She loved big and took care of those she loved. She will be missed. She was very easy to please and enjoyed simple things. I'll miss you and I'll think of you often and with great fondness.

You may recognize me easier as Diane McGraw; I want to share my sincerest sympathies to the entire Barker family! I regret that we all lost touch with one another. Seeing the beautiful photo of your mom I can see each of you in her eyes, and it brought back an incredible avalanche of wonderful memories! Hugs and prayers for peace and comfort !
