Barbara and I were best friends in grammar school in Yonkers, NY. We went to different high scools and after we graduated, we lost touch. I have been trying for years to find her and now, sadly, I think I have. I had so many good times at her house with her Grandma Grady. We lived on Huber Place about three houses from each other. I am soooo sorry that we didn't connect as adults. The last time I saw her, she just arrived on my doorstep in Yonkers and we picked up where we left off so many years before. Keep connected with people you love, life is too precious and too short. My deepest sympathy to all Barbara's children. Rae Hudson Rylander([email protected])

I taught with Barbara at St. Joseph and car pooled with her as well. She had a wonderful, wicked sense of humor combined with a deep Irish faith that helped me through some dark moments . Soon it will be All SAINTS DAY and Barbara will shine like the star she is. She often spoke of her children's accomplishments and her grandchildren, Her light will shine on them. Peace and blessings, Carol Zarek

What an inspiration Barbara was to one and all. The memorial was an excellent display of love within her family and friends throughout the community.

Kahn Kids & Grandkids - your Mother (GB) is very proud of each and every one of you.

You did a wonderful job in memorializing your Mom. I know that she would be proud, appreciative and filled with love for all of you.

I can only say after that beautiful memorial service at Barbara's home on Tuesday, that it has given me much to aspire for as a person, and as a mother. If I am half of what she was, I will consider myself fortunate, indeed. I only wish I could have known her better; it seems I could have learned much from her about how to better mother my own kids. You guys were blessed, but I don't have to tell you that. Bless you all.

Barbara and I worked together at SJHS and had a special tie as we both graduated from St.Barnabas HS in New York. I was 4 years ahead of her. She was a wonderful person, who loved her family and life, and lived it to the fullest. She was Auntie Mame from the "git go"; her love of color, laughter, and friends made her special. My sincerest condolences. She will be missed. Barbara was also a great cheerleader to me in my recent illness--sending cards and talking on the phone.

Johnny and I send our love to you all during this difficult time. Barbara must have been an incredible woman; she certainly has an impressive fan-club.

I met her only one time while she was visiting her daughter, Terri, in Utah (Terri is my sister-in-law). At the time, Barbara was reading a book that I had recently read. I absolutely enjoyed my conversation with her about the plot and characters. Isn't it amazing how just one conversation with her left such a lasting impression? I wish I knew her secret to being such an extraordinary person.

And her children will carry on her legacy. Cheers to Barbara!

Well, Mrs Rieger we never always agreed on our political views, or the Yankees, but you were the best history teacher that I have had the chance to be taught by. The SJHS family will miss you.
