Barbara, Mom, lived a life driven by a combination of love, service and humility. She lost her mother at a young age and she was the oldest of 3. She managed to bring both the essence of sister and mother to Lois and Frankie. When she married Dad, the love grew exponentially which resulted in the legacy she leaves behind in the lives of us children and spouses, her grandchildren and their spouses and the many, many great grandchildren. So many others called her mom, aunt, sister and friend. Even her long time employers felt the loss of her love and service when she retired. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends - but the countless memories of special moments will never be forgotten, especially to us as her children. Mom, we commit to a continuation of living lives of love, service and humility to each other and all who cross our paths. You loved and taught us so well. We already miss you beyond words.
Jon, Jayne, Jim, Joy and Julie
