Not sure what to say?

To Susan and all the family, my deepest sympathies. I was very fond of Barbara and have many good memories of her, going all the way back to the years when she was a nun. I'm really sad to think I will never see her or talk to her again. She was such a nice person. Cousin Steve Arnett

I loved Barbara, my paternal cousin. She was one of those "good as gold" people one is fortunate to know in life. She always cared about her extended Arnett family. She took devoted care of her husband during his illness, and then her mother. I wish I'd been able to see more of her in the later years of her own life, but I'm grateful we always kept in touch. I admired her very much. I will miss her. Claudia Arnett Steinbrecher (Highland Park, IL)

Barb was a wonderful teacher and I loved working with her. Her work with Soph out was amazing and I know she made a difference to hundreds of students. After Barb and I retired, we became very good friends. I will miss her dearly. My deepest condolences to the family.

Barbara was an outstanding teacher for the Bishop Foley Faith Community. I was very fortunate to be involved with both her and her husband Brian in Catholic Education. They were great people and outstanding educators. My deepest condolences to her family and may she rest in peace in the arms of Our Heavenly Father.

So sad to hear of Barbara's demise. She was a cherished friend in high school and I have so many memories of the fun we had and the times we shared those four years at Felician Academy. Condolences to the family.

I had known Barb for some time now, as I was her dog Mollys, petsitter. Barb was such a sweet and caring person. I enjoyed our visits, and getting to know her. She was not only a client, but more than that, I am lucky to have had her for a friend. I am going to miss her dearly, as well as our visits together. My deepest sympathies to her nieces and newphews, who I have had the pleasure of meeting them recently. I will keep you all in my prayers. No one needs to tell you what a very special...

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Barb taught across the hall from me for many years. She also taught my children. She was an example of what everyone should try to be. My deepest sympathy to the family.
