Barb was a special woman who showed love for everyone! She was very pleasant and happy and ready to help anyone who needed it! Such a love only comes from the LORD! Barb will be missed dearly from all who knew her. We know she is with Jesus, not suffering anymore!!

Barbara was a kind, loving and generous girl, from childhood throughout her life. She was a dear friend to my sister Gennevieve and I hope they are now reunited in heaven. I have always believed that God places very special people on earth to walk among us so that we might see how Jesus would have as behave. They are chosen by God to be Christian examples. Barbara was one of those people. She loved her God and demonstrated her faith in every thing she said and did. Now he has called her home to rest. Well done God's good and faithful servant.

This is a very sad day for me. Barbara and I have been dear friends forever. As young girls we went to church together. Then we went all through school together. After school we worked in Johnstown together. We were married months apart. My daughter and her son were born the same year. It goes on and on. Now at last she has gone home to her God and she has found peace. I will truly miss this wonderful lady.
