Barb was a friend and client of several years. She was a sincere person, very caring and kind. I am sure that she has blessed you all with wonderful memories of a beautiful life. I am sorry that I will not be able to attend the viewing or service and to express my sympathies in person. My deepest heartfelt sympathies go out to all of you.

May God be with you all in your time of grief. Barb was quite a lady with a lot of class and a wonderful sense of humor. Her smile was infectious. She will be missed, but Heaven is now a better place because of her presence.

May She Rest in Peace

To Barb&s loved ones:

I am so very sorry for your loss. Barb was very special. She was dear to my heart as I am sure to so many.

I knew Barb through my work with Purdue in providing voice support and services. I considered her much more than a customer, she was my friend. She was warm and loving. There wasn&t a judgmental bone in her body. I can still see her smiling when I think of her.

Glen, Barb was so grateful for finding you. She told me how fortunate she felt to have you as her partner and her friend.

Brett, Your mother adored you. She was so pround of you. She just glowed when she would talk about her visits with you.

God has a very special place in heaven for Barb. One of his angels has returned home.

She will be missed.

To Barb&s loved ones.
We all have missed her so very much. For such a petite little lady, she certainly made a huge impact on a lot of lives. She wasn&t only a boss, but a friend and confidant that was always available to us. It didn&t matter how busy she was or what she was going through personally, her door and arms were open.
Barb was the first to join in on fun times and would sometimes surprise me with her off the wall humor. Her professional image was one of great knowledge and strength, so when she let lose and had fun it was always great. Her beautiful smile would light up the room.
There was never a doubt that her first love was her family. She always praised Glen, talked about her sons and grandchildren and was so excited about the new one coming in January. She looked forward to sharing all this with her mother.
Barb shared many details about the wedding last summer and beamed with pride talking about the new &additions&.
She left her mark in many wonderful ways and we will recall her messages and caring attitude for many, many years to come.
May the Lord hold each of you in his loving hands and help you find joy in the memories.

I was so sad to hear of Barb&s passing. I worked with her professionally while I was at Purdue and Barb was always one of the group that you could count on. I am sorry for the sadness of your loss and I can only take comfort in that Barb can now have some peace from her battle.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

We will miss Barb very much but those we love don&t really leave us, they remain in our hearts and memories forever. Barbara was a big part of our family always partaking of events and willing to lend a helping hand. She brought sunshine into our lives with her million dollar smile. She was a very special niece to me and I am very proud of her. Continued prayers that God may give you strength. Our love, Aunt Jan & Carol Flora. XOXO

I just got in contact with Barb again in Nov and we talked via e-mail. I am so sorry to hear about her passing. Words can&t express how I feel. Time passes way to fast and then we don&t have any. We spoke of our kids and how she was so happy that Brett had found someone to spend his life with and that he was having a baby. May God be with you and your family during this time. I will miss her and will remember our wonderful memories forever. Cathy and Larry Brooks
