I worked at Methodist Nursing Home with Barbara for many years. She was a wonderful nurse and mother. She will be greatly missed.

Barbara was a devoted mother and nurse. When we first met both Andi and Paula were just children. Methodist Nursing Home could count on Barbara faithfully being there to care for her residents on North wing . No matter the weather conditions or circumstance Barbara came to work. I had the privilege of staying in contact with her after she retired. She never changed. She was always faithful to the people she loved. She cared for Paula and she took care of her grandchildren. I will always treasure our friendship. May the Lord comfort and keep all her family that loved her dearly.

My Aunt Barbara was a very kind and generous woman. There are many memories of her, One of the sweetest memories I will always have of her is her scent, she always smelled good. Every time I put on perfume I will think of her. She will always be very special to me. Love always, your Becky
