She was the second of five girls. She had a great love for God and her family. Barb had a tender heart that went beyond family and friends-always wanting to help anyone she saw in need. Growing up she enjoyed being a part of Brown ‘s Bravados and played saxophone in the Wadsworth High School band. After college Barb worked in the bookkeeping and social work fields, and then primarily staying home to raise two kids. Every year Barb and her husband baked countless loaves of zucchini bread to give away and she would make her famous lasagna and southern cream cookies for family gatherings.
