We are sorry to learn of Barbara's passing. We grew up together here in Shawneetown and then for a few years we enjoyed having you as neighbors here on Logan Avenue and I had Kim in class. We are sorry for your loss and will keep all of you in our thoughts and prayers. May she rest in peace.
Sincerely, Larry and Mary Jo

Barb and I were classmates from the 1st to the 12th grade in Shawneetown. She was a wonderful person in numerous ways. Thanks to her initiative and outreach, Barb brought our classmates together to celebrate our various graduation anniversaries--from the 10th to the 60th. She did much good while here with us, providing a good example for all of us to follow. She made possible many cherished memories for all our classmates. To all her family, my spouse Charlene and I extend our deepest sympathy and prayers, especially prayers of gratitude for the good she did during her earthly pilgrimage with us. Our memory of Barb will live on, as I am confident she is living on in the fulness of life with our God and all the saints.
