Such a joyful soul wherever she was. Worked with her at Budget and Finance years ago. So sorry for your loss may your loving memories help you in this time.

Barby and I often walked to Forsythe together and met again from time to time over the years. I considered her to be a childhood friend. My thoughts are with her family and friends.

I worked with Barb at Wolverine Towers for many years. She was kind, dependable, and always had an easy smile. She loved her cats and their companionship. Prayers for the family and their loss.
