My deepest sympathy to Dave and Matthew and Penny, her dear grandchildren, her siblings and entire family. I like to think of myself as an old friend of Barbs both as a neighbor and Wilbraham resident. I have many good memories of socializing at the Commons and seeing our children grow up together. We grew apart but kept in touch for years by social media sharing the lives of our families. Rest In Peace Barbara. You will be missed by many many people. 😇😇😇😇
