I have known Barbara for 45 years ( former daughter in law) and will really miss her. She was a very special and caring person who we didn't see as often as we would have liked, due to the distance between us. Fortunately we were able to visit and spend time with her in April and chatted regularly with her on the phone over the years.
I have many happy memories of time spent together in Fresno and also sailing with her and Lee at Huntington Lake.
Barbara will always have a special place in our hearts.

Barbara loved reminiscing about sailing on Huntington Lake and enjoyed hearing about our boating adventures too. It was always fun getting together with family and having our special lunches that we all looked forward to. We have wonderful memories of Cousin Barbara and we will miss her. RIP
