Thank you so very much for all of your help when I was an undergraduate at Krannert. You made such a positive impact on my life. Sympathy to your family. Rest in peace.

I was on the faculty of the Krannert School during Barb's tenure as Undergraduate Program Director, and, for several years, served on or chaired the Undergraduate Program Committee. In my view, Barb was a complete professional in leading the program, and directing her staff, More important, she loved the students and everyone knew it.

While I only knew Barbara for the past year, I was honored to be part of her life. As a part time caregiver I felt Barbara was one of my best friends. Every day being by her side had a positive effect to my own life. It was always the best part of my day to care for her. To see her beautiful smile and blue eyes was a delight. I hope my care for her made her feel comfortable, safe and loved because she deserved the best anyone could give her. I enjoyed witnessing her interacting with her family whether by zoom, phone calls or in person. What love! This whole family radiates what family love should be about. Barb's face would light up when she spoke to any one of them. She was blessed and she knew it. I was blessed and I'll never forget. Love, light and prayers to all Barbara's family and friends.
