Dear Duane and family. I am so sorry to hear that Barb passed away. She and I went to high school together and I was her maid of honor at your wedding. Even though I haven't seen her lately, I will always remember how sweet and friendly she was to me. I wish I could have attended her memorial but was hesitant due to the Covid situation. I hope and pray that all of you will take comfort in the many happy memories you shared with Barb. Warmly, Maureen (Foley) Hake

My sympathy to you Dwayne and your family. I think back what a sweet person Barb was. Remembering our ride together to Ft. Riley (many years ago) also sharing the bus trip several years ago and hy-vee cards. God bless all of you.....Karen
