Sharlyn & Marla,
My thoughts and prayers are with both of you during this difficult time. I prayed she would get thru her medical problems, but I know she is in a better place. I can remember being at your house for a Joy Class party and your Mom and Dad were always gracious hosts.
I pray that God's grace will sustain both of you and give you peace. You will see your Mom again, so keep your faith and hold on to all your good memories.

I and my sister Kathy (Kathryn) send our deepest condolences to Barbara’s children and grandchildren as well as Marsha and Bill. We have known the Palmer girls since we were very young as cousins and friends.
I looked up to Barbara and Marsha growing up in school as well as 4-H. I also remember my family attending Barbara and Don’s wedding. I never could remember Satchwill very well as Barbara’s new name and occasionally slip up and call Don a Palmer. Oh well laughter usually followed.
I was saddened to see Don has passed a few years ago. (Like my Ken) What happy memories your family can enjoy sharing with future generations.
Sincerely, Cheryl Heaston Beougher

I am saddened to hear of Barbara's passing. She was a special friend to me during our high school days. I remember many a sleep over with her and her hardworking family. I also remember us playing in the band...Barbara played flute and I clarinet. She was a great pianist.

Sending sympathy and prayer for her daughters and sister, Marsha.
