Barbara Urban Barthell, 82, died on April 24, 2013, at Olympic Medical Center after a monthlong battle with pneumonia.
"Barb" was born in Chicago and grew up in a northern suburb, Wilmette. She married "Pete" Barthell in 1949, the start of a 63-year journey together.
Barb is survived by husband Pete, daughter Sidney, son John and a brother, Lloyd Urban.
As Barb wished, there will be no ceremony.
