Helen Ester Barber

Jan. 17, 1929 - Dec. 25, 2017

NILES - Jim was in the Marines in WWII and met Helen while attending Western Michigan University. They were married August 19, 1950 in Kalamazoo, and raised three children in Niles, MI where Jim was an engineer for Kawneer and Helen was a teacher in the Brandywine school district as well as a 4-H instructor. In later years, they lived in Nashua, NH; Seattle, WA; Monett, MO; Hot Springs, AR; and Lee's Summit, MO. They were married just shy of 62 years when Jim passed away from complications of Alzheimer's in Pleasant Hill, MO. Helen passed away last Christmas day in Dimondale, MI due to complications of dementia. Jim and Helen are survived by their son, David (Janet) Barber of Crystal Lake, IL; their two daughters, Suzanne (Lou) Veiga of Houston, TX and Melanie Barber of Everett, WA; four grandchildren, Alison and Melinda Barber, and Daniel and Michael Veiga; and Helen's sister, Agnes Campbell, of Richland, MI.
