An angel on earth,
now in heaven ;

Twinkling eyes!
Warm happy laughter!
A heart of pure gold!

Heaven is blessed to have you,
dear Cousin!

The world was a better place because of your presence.

We were deeply saddened to hear of Barbara's passing. We all shared Barbara's passion for antiques, garage sales, auctions and bus trips to many interesting places. We also greatly enjoyed her company and conversations over numerous meals and social engagements. She had a wonderful laugh and a subtle sense of humor. We are grateful for a life well lived and a person who was well loved. It is our hope that warm memories will comfort her family and friends in the days, weeks and months ahead.

Barbara Jean was a beloved cousin. Growing up, I looked forward to our family get-togethers. Usually playing cards or fishing but always with laughter. Barbara was a great storyteller with a wonderful laugh. I will always carry her in my heart.

Barbara was my sister-in-law and even though I knew her shortly I will miss her, and her nice frequent conversations with Thom and me. She was a dear person with a nice smile and always pleasant. Love you always.

Barbara was my eldest sister. With both parents working, I was taken care of by both of my sisters, so we grew up as very close siblings. Barbara and I shared many of the same interests, and we were great friends. I will miss her terribly. Rest well, dear sister. Love never dies.
