Barbara was a devoted wife and mother to her three children. She enjoyed seeing her sons play baseball and her daughter dance. For Barbara it was all about her family and helping those around her. Her smile would light up any room. She was never one to mince words and had a million sage sayings. She took pride in her families accomplishments and never missed a family event. She and Bob would be front and center at recitals, graduations, fundraisers, cheering competitions etc. Although Barbara hated camping she would be a trooper so her children could enjoy an outdoor vacation. As a family we spent a lot of time at the beach, which we loved. We always felt her affection and guidance. Later in life Barbara and Bob traveled a bit and always enjoyed finding a good adventure together.
Barbara and Bob had fun learning to square dance with the Scarlet Squares. Barbara loved to cook and make a good ‘gravy’. Barbara cherished the annual family reunion at her sister’s home in New Hampshire.
