I worked with Barbara her entire time at Holy Redeemer We were close friends then and have remained friends ever since. I will miss her.. My sympathy to Don.
A life long friend - she has helped me in my personal growth for the last few years. Both Barb and Frank were so much fun: but the lady of the house was the most !!! Classy, smart, pretty, funny and ease to talk to. My prayers go to Don- will have a coffee and prayer with you soon ^^^Andrea Trout.
An intelligent, wise, gracious and beautiful lady with a great sense of humor. Her legacy lives on through her family. Loretta & Barry Dahlen
