Barbara Jane Elliott

Howard and I were so sorry to of Aunt Barbara’s passing....we always recall the time we saw Aunt Barbara and Uncle George....at a family gathering and Barbara and George were ready to leave. Barbara asked George to pick up her purse and George, having a great sense of humor, picked it up with an “UMPH” pretending it was too heavy to pick up. That’s how I always remember them...a fabulous happy couple who could always make us laugh. We like to think they are together again....RIP Aunt Barbara...you will be missed.
