Scott, Joy, and families; I was so saddened to hear of Barb's passing. She was such a kind person, and always had a smile and a twinkle in her eye. I will miss seeing her come in to the library so much! You are in our thoughts and prayers.

My sympathy to Barb's family. I knew Barb in Larrabee and later in Marcus and always enjoyed her company. She was so quiet and a real lady.
She will be missed. My sympathy.
