Barbara was one of the faithful ladies that came to Bible study every Thursday at University Oaks. We were so saddened to hear of her death. A fine Christian, who loved her Lord. Her sweet smile will be missed.

Barbara was my neighbor and friend and will be missed. I have missed her since she moved and remember her fondly. We put together many puzzles on her dining room table and had a great time. She fed me many of her famous chicken salad sandwiches and brought me a bottle of water many times I was working in the yard.
I look forward to seeing her again one day.
