Terry and I send our deepest condolences at this sad time to you, Sam, and your sons and grandchildren. Barb was a delightful lady and we always enjoyed running into her in the store or, (for Terry) at Curves.

Sam, So sorry to hear about Barbara's passing. I just heard about it I remember her as a beautiful young girl riding on the school bus when she first moved to Peters Twp. and also singing solo in the choir at Center Church. She had such a beautiful voice.
