Barbara was a devoted wife and mother. She was filled with kindness, love and generosity. Being a wife and mother fulfilled her heart. Family is what mattered to her. She was able to see her children, grandchildren, and even great grandchildren become parents themselves. She had all the love in the world to give to her family. In her physical life she was the glue that kept the family together. As God has taken her to be with Him, she continues to be that loving person as she takes care of those that preceded her in death, and prepares for her devoted husband, children and grandchildren. Barbara’s love will always live on as she has taught all of her family to love as she did.
