Barbara loved the Lord and her family. She served faithfully most of her life in the Young Women's Program and was a master seamstress and cook.
Barbara was a dear friend to all, especially her children and grandchildren who love her deeply and will miss her. She had a radiant smile and quick wit which endeared her to everyone she knew. The most important job to her was wife and mother, to which she excelled. She was a valiant daughter of God and set that example for all she came in contact with. Patient and kind, the love that other's have for her is a testament to who she was and how she lived her life. She is now reunited with other family and loved ones, free from the frailties of this life to fully enjoy the blessings and rewards of the next.
