I knew Barb for a short period of time while working with her at Walts Bakery. She was such an amazing teacher, so patient & kind as she showed me the ropes. She ALWAYS had a smile on her face. I used to call her fire cracker Barb! She will be deeply missed as she was so loved by many.

I am very sad to hear about Barb passing away. My sincere condolences to all the family members.
I was with her in homeroom in high school, class of 57-61. She always had a smile and I enjoyed chatting with her everyday.
