She was just shy of her 81st birthday. She will be greatly missed! “Well done, good and faithful servant. … Enter into the joy of your Lord! Barbara loved the Lord and was a praise and worshiper at heart. She loved High Praises Church, her church family, and Pastor Jackie Midkiff. She loved her family and adopting others into her family. She was a Jack (Jill)-of-All trades and would try her hand at fixing most anything. She was ahead of her time, utilizing technology and sharing her knowledge with others. Barbara inherited a strong work ethic from her mother. Her work history included years at Levi’s Strauss, Lee Roberson Art Gallery, and DENSO Manufacturing. Thereafter, she enjoyed retirement with her husband, spending time outside in her flower and vegetable gardens, canning and making jellies.

Barbara was a graduate of Walland High School.
