Naples, FL

Barbara B. Flagel, 78 years old, passed away on Wednesday, April 12, 2017 after more than seven years of suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

Barb was born in, and was a long-term resident of Dayton, Ohio before moving to Naples, Florida over 25 years ago.

Barb was a wonderful, devoted wife to Jerry for over 59 years. She is also survived by her four children, Scott (Mary), Stephanie (Andrew), John (Lisa), and Debi. Also surviving are seven grandchildren: Stacey, Marc, Zack, Connor, Abery, Chase, and Davida. Barb is also survived by her brother, Jim (Amy), and many nephews and nieces. Her parents, Constance and Morton Block, and brother, Blaine, predeceased her.

Barb attended Northwestern University and was a proud graduate of the Ohio State University School of Education. She was a pre-school teacher in Dayton for many years and took great pride in following her students' progress through college, etc. Besides teaching, she volunteered for several organizations including Jewish Family Services, Jewish Federation, Temple Shalom and Hospice.

In addition to spending time with her grandchildren, Barb's active life included tennis, golf, biking, swimming, dancing, and especially long walks on the beach. Perhaps swimming aerobics at the Strand where she lived the last 16 years was her favorite. Barb also loved to read books and rarely missed a day without completing the crossword puzzle. Traveling frequently throughout the world with Jerry was one of her passions but clearly her favorite was being with family. Her children and grandchildren were her "jewels." Barb will be missed by both her family and friends.

A Memorial Service will be held at Temple Shalom on Sunday, April 16th at 2:00pm with Rabbi Adam Miller officiating. The family will have a private interment at Palm Royale Cemetery.

The family requests that, in lieu of flowers, contributions be made to Temple Shalom, Jewish Federation of Collier County or Hope Hospice.
