To all of Barbara's loved ones--friend and family alike we express our heartfelt sympathy. She touched so many lives with her love for children and animals. She always had room for just one more kid or one more animal.
She came into our lives when our younger son Andy was eight months old which was forty years ago. As our son's childcare provider we became close friends remaining so through the years since the late 1970's. Heaven has gained one special angel!! Rest in Peace Barbara~~~ from your friends Dave and Margie Sisk

The Wimpsett family was extremely sad to hear about Barbara’s passing.
She was Chandler’s day care giver from 8 weeks old until she went to kindergarten and a big part of our lives.
Prayers go out to her family.
