  2. My condolences to all of Barbara\’s family and may you pass with peace onto the next generations. Barbara loved her nursing field, loved her boys very deeply, and loved to give back to those in the community. She was a superb cook, had a deep green thumb with indoor plants, and she kept her family healthy with a bounty of home-grown vegetables throughout many years. She exemplified the work ethic. May you rest in peace, Barbara. You lived a long life and tried your best in all that you did. I will always love how doting a grandmother you were with your first grandchild, my daughter. Andrea
