In April 2021, Barb was diagnosed with lung cancer and immediately started treatment. She always stated if the doctors were not going to give up neither was she. During this time, she continued to spend every minute with her grandbabies, reading her books on the back deck soaking up the sun, traveling to see family and friends, cooking/baking and enjoying every moment with her family. She was thoughtful and kind always calling to check on you and yours. We were grateful and blessed to know of her love and love her back. Barb’s life would seem too short to all of us, but those of us who were Blessed to be touched by her faith and understand that her existence and the imprint she left on our hearts exceed the quantity of time that she stayed here.
