Barbara was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and a faithful friend to countless people throughout her life.

She loved to spend time with family and friends, faithfully sent notes and cards, and delighted in the simple pleasures of sharing food and fellowship. Barbara was a Hoosier in her core- loved basketball and sports of all kinds, enjoyed travel, nature, wildlife, playing Rook and other games, as well as reading and keeping up with current events.
