To the family :
So sorry for your loss. I remember Barb from North school. My sister and I would walk to her house and then go onto school. I also would go to her grandparents house and we would go to the Y in Waukegan for our swimming lessons.
May she Rest In Peace my prayers are with you at this time.

People come and go in Life. The ones who love and support you up close, from afar & never go…are the ones that are missed the most when they do. Barbara was my mother Corinne’s BFF for over half a century and I have known and loved her all my life. My mom made her my Godmother, but she was more of a Godsend. Barbara always made me feel Special. A little something extra the tree, a birthday card, a congratulations note, a hand-made Pabst Blue Ribbon Hat…I could always count on Barbara to bring a smile to my face. Bill, Billy, Mary Lee, Steven & Michael our heart goes out to you. Thank you for sharing this beautiful woman with us. With deepest sympathy, Monte & Cheryl Nennig
