Barb was such a bright and humorous person, and a big sister to Ron and me. Looking back, I have many fond memories of our get-togethers. I think the last time I saw her, was her daughter's baby shower. She was always so cheerful when I saw her.
I'd like to share a photo of Barb with the Ron Oswald family. Prayers and blessings to her family.

Barb was a wonderful friend to me. I'm so glad her sister and my best friend Bev got us together. I will treasure the memories I have of our fun times together. Going to movies, lunch, shopping, happy hours, etc. Our cruise to Alaska and how scared she was getting in a helicopter and how we laughed. The times at her Happy Place, the lake.. Most of all her smile and friendship.

My deepest sympathy to Debbie, Danny, Karen, Steven, Kelly and all her grandchildren and extended family. Barb will be forever in your hearts. She is now with Jerry.

Love ya Barb , my forever friend

Barb and Gerry were two of the finest people neighbors could possibly have. She was such a kind and caring person with such a warm heart. Barb always had such a beautiful smile on her face whenever you saw her. I'll never forget walking outside with Gerry sitting on my Harley and she was taking pictures of him with a huge smile on his face, she enjoyed it just as much as he did. It was such a beautiful moment that I could never forget. It was a great to see such a beautiful couple together. May she rest in peace as Gerry welcomes her with open arms into the kingdom of heaven.

Barb was our neighbor at the lake. She was so sweet and we knew right away we would be friends! She loved her pontoon boat and we had many rides with her. She loved her family! She always had a beautiful smile.
Friday nights were spent on her deck for happy hour! She was a lovely hostess!
We will always miss her!
Love you Barb
