So sorry to hear about Barb’s passing and that I won’t be able to come back to Greencastle to offer what support I could to Cindy, Lisa and their family. Barb and my mom were thick as thieves on Northwood Blvd. when all of us were growing up and remained close after they both downsized and sold the homes where we were raised. She was a lovely and talented woman who gave to the world around her through her art and through her life and her two lovely and talented daughters. The world is a dimmer place without her presence in it.

Barb was an amazing woman. I would get to visit w her when her driver took her to an Avon nursing home to visit w her friend, Susan Hirt. I loved talking w Barb. Barb painted a beautiful mural in our Circuit Court Courtroom many years ago and I look at the beautiful and amazing painting often. I am so sorry for the family. I know you will greatly miss her.
