It is with deep sadness that I read about Barbara's death by cancer. I grew up in Bethel and knew Barbara, her mom and dad. She was a dear person and although I was not close to her she was one of those people who had a zest for life and it showed. I am so deeply sorry that Barbara has passed on. My heartfelt sympathy to her children and grandchildren, other family and friends. I will hold you all in my thoughts and prayers as you all move through the sadness and the grief and loss of your beloved mother, grandmother and friend.
Blessings Always,
Barbara Martin
