Barbara A. Ahten

July 25, 1932March 3, 2018

Barbara Ann Mear Ahten Barbara Ahten passed away Saturday, March 3, 2018 in Surprise, Arizona. Barbara was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Ahten, who passed away in 2006. Barb worked at ICC for many years, returning to work after being a stay at home mother. Barb and Bob were avid dancers, enjoying square dancing, round dancing, and later dedicating much time to ballroom dancing. Survivors include children Kathy Gavelys of Surprise Arizona, Rob Ahten of Boise Idaho, and Angie Hesselbrock of Ft. Worth Texas, along with their spouses, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. As an animal lover, Barb’s hope was that as she entered the pearly gates of Heaven, not only would she join those whom she loved and lost, but all of her pets who had crossed the Rainbow Bridge would be waiting eagerly to be reunited with her. Hopefully, she is with them all now.
