We certainly loved Barbara. In spite of whatever challenge she was going through she always had a bright smile and a sweet countenance.

Sister Erskine was a second mother to me when I was away from my mother, serving as a missionary in Cincinnati. She literally housed and fed me and my companions. She shared her unconditional love and wonderful sense of humor and love of life and of the Gospel with us. I will forever love her and feel so blessed to have been placed in her path and felt her radiating spiritual beauty!

Dear Dale and family,
I have enjoyed Barb's friendship for more than 50 years...
-from our days working together at McCrory's while in high school;
-to our days as single ladies---Barb, Chris, Toni and Cindy---out and about in Fairborn and at WPAFB;
-to sharing major life events (graduations, weddings, raising children, health issues, and dealing with the death of loved ones);
-to our golden years....

My husband, Chuck, and I have always had so much respect and admiration for Barb as she dealt with health challenges over the years and ALWAYS demonstrated such a positive outlook on life! She will truly be missed.

With Sincere Sympathy,
Cindy (Koppenhafer) Bogner
