Barbara and I were classmates in the FBI Academy. After graduation she went to Louisville and I was assigned to Newark where years later she transferred. Looking back, I believe her kindness to everyone she encountered stands out as an enduring quality. She was also so very nice and pleasant to others. To her family members, I am sorry for your loss. Please know that I have the upmost respect for Barbara and know how much she will be missed.

Barb was always a joy to work with. I had many dealings with her both in her case work and her work with Infraguard. She had a good sense of humor also. She wore this green blazer a lot and I joked with her that I didn't realize she had won the masters. Barb displayed professionalism and kindness and she will be missed.

Barb was such a genuine, caring and kind person. She was always there for others at a moments notice. I had the honor and privilege to work with her a number of times over the years and assist on the outstanding cases she ran at the FBI. May the fond memories of good times together help ease the pain of your loss.
With Sincerest Condolences, Russ H.

To all of Barb's family,

Working with Barb always brought sunshine into my day. She was my favorite Special Agent in the Newark Division, a sweet and kindhearted person. I think of her as "The Salt of the Earth".
May Barb rest in peace, and God be with you and yours.
