Barbara was born in Willard, NM on October 25, 1922 to Cirllio Maes and Barbara Dow, one of eight children (four boys and four girls). She was preceded in death by her Husband, Joe Reinhardt, three sisters and three brothers.
Barbara married Joe Reinhardt on May 18 1942 and they moved to Ruidoso where they raised their three children. In 1997, after 55 years of marriages, her husband Joe died at their home in Bent NM. Shortly thereafter she moved to Roswell to be near her two daughters Fran and Bobbie. In 2012 she moved into her new assisted living home, at the Beehive, which she dearly loved. There she received excellent care and made many new and wonderful friends.
Barbara loved life, was devoted to her family, church and community. She loved the outdoors, the clouds, her flowers, turtles and the many wild birds she fed in her back yard. Her best friend and companion for the last 10 years was her little Welch Corgi dog, Mitzie. She would brighten a room wherever she went with her big smile and warm heart. She brought sunshine to everyone who knew her.
