Barbara is survived by daughters, Traci Bindas, Hazleton; Tami Bindas and fiancé, James Perchak, Hazleton; and son, John J. Bindas and wife, Vanessa, Drums; and grandchildren, John T. Bindas and Kaitlyn Bindas. Also surviving is sister, Dolores Suvada; and sisters-in-law, Carolyn Suvada, Virginia; and Eleanor Furnanage, Sugarloaf Twp. In addition, numerous cousins, nieces and nephews also survive.
