August 22, 1956 - June 8, 2021
Barbara Ann, Barb, Miss Barb, and Aunt Barb. She loved family, flowers in her backyard, and Royal Oak. Barb lived her entire life on Etowah Street, and in that corner house bought by our parents, she nurtured and protected memories of holiday celebrations, parental love, and family ties. Barb's last year was challenging as she managed myriad health issues; nevertheless, she was consistently cheerful as she began to plan for a new life in a new home. Despite the pandemic, she stayed involved in the lives of others, shopping for friends, engaging in long telephone conversations, and always looking forward to better days. Barb was fiercely devoted to the things and people she cared about. She was stubborn and did not always like change; however, she was always interested in how the world and those she loved were changing. In many ways, Barb was a bridge between generations. She took care of the young as a committed and enthusiastic preschool teacher for nearly forty-five years. She was exceptionally dedicated to her elders, especially to our dear and sweet mother Rosalee, or Rosie. Barb's life was rooted in community and family. She was intrigued by family history, but even more enamored with the younger generation. She was an energetic aunt, always eager for news of Natalie and Daniella. She remembered birth dates, anniversaries, and who was related to whom. Barb loved life, past and present. She adored her cousins, Ralph and Maria, Bill and Anne, and cherished her neighbors from her childhood, the Harts and Cartwrights, and her current neighbor Janis. She enjoyed outings to the theater with Carol and friends, and catching up with old workmates, including Janice and Sharon. Most of all, she was loved by her brother and sister, Curtis and Helen, and their partners, Jo Anne and Irving, and her loving niece, Natalie Rose. Barb will be missed greatly, but remembered with love.
