  2. I was so sorry to learn that Barb had passed away. She and Ken were our neighbors on J St. Great people and wonderful neighbors.

  3. I was so sorry to hear of Barb’s passing. She was a true Christian woman in every sense – always kind and gracious she was a wonderful reflection of her faith to others. May you find comfort knowing she is safely in God’s care.
