I met Barb when I worked at the Winnebago County Health Department. I started December 3rd, 1984 in Health Education. Mrs. Pat Fabrisi was Director. I assisted with the proof reading of the Annual Report and had contact with each division. The nurses at WCHD are/were the best. Barb was one dedicated nurse. Sincere condolences to her family.

I had the honor of spending some time with your mother while she was with us at Agrace. I enjoyed visiting with her, listening to her stories when she worked and her time in Florida. Her eyes sparkled when she smiled! A true lady with dignity and spunk! My condolences sent with love to you all.

I worked with Barb in the FP Clinic at WCHD. I remember Barb as being a wonderfully supportive person to a young recently divorced mom of two little boys. Barb was a supportive coworker and encouraged me to complete my Associates and BS degrees. My sympathy to her family.
