On April 17, 1971, she married Theodore Kaminski at St. Mary of Mt. Carmel Catholic Church in Fancher. She was employed at Kolbe & Kolbe for 24 years. She loved gardening, cooking, watching the Brewers, shopping at Menards & Fleet Farm, and her Facebook blog "What's for Supper Aunt Barb". Most important to her was her family, especially her grandchildren. She devoted her life to church and reading the Bible. Barb is survived by her husband: Theodore Kaminski, Hatley; her children: Joseph (Michelle L.) Kaminski, Mosinee; Kenneth (Michelle A.)

A special thank you goes to her very close friends, Shirley Ross, Pastor Mark, and Pastor Bev for always being there for her, and to the nurses and staff at St. Clares Hospital for making her time there as comfortable as possible. Barb is greatly missed and will be forever in our hearts.
