As I look back and reflect on my cousin Barbara, I know what an strong and beautiful women she was. A great Mother, Grandmother, and awesome sister she was to Peggy and Leisa as well as a beloved daughter to Joe and Linda. She loved her family so much and I know God is well pleased for that love she gave. She will be greatly missed, but the life she lived is a lifetime of precious love and memories, Love you in Jesus arms.

I had the pleasure of sitting next to Barb at work and over time we became good friends. She had a quick wit and sense of humor that I will miss along with her wisdom and advice. No matter what the issue, Barb had a sense of understanding and wisdom that only comes from living a full life. I miss our talks, her hugs, and especially her laugh. I had only recently heard and my thoughts and prayers are with her family as our world is a dimmer place without her in it.
