Barbara was a classy lady and a joy to work with on several of our reunion committees. I have missed seeing her for quite some time due I believe to her health related problems.  She definately was always a redskin!         Terry Lee

Went to school with Barbara from Woodland, to Marshall, & North.

Barbara was a good "old " friend. Funny, smart, and seemed to enjoy most of her life One thing we kidded about was her "love" of the Container Store. She would tell us about all the different cities in which she had shopped at the Container Store and the great things she found there. As an elementary school teacher, can't imagine how many containers she must have had and what a good teacher she must have been.

She was a special Redskin and will always be.She will be missed.

Gosh, so many great memories that go back over the years!  Parties (I have a lot of the invitations in my scrap book and clippings out of the Wichita Eagle), shopping trips to Kansas City, the Hawaiian Luau in the summer between our Junior and Senior years, the wedding shower Barbara and her Mother had for me, looooong telephone conversations, Barbara's annual Christmas Cookie Exchanges over many years, lunches and dinners out, Christmas dinners at each other's homes and at Amanda's (our daughter) home, St. Paul's United Methodist Church (Barbara was still a member there), and so many more.  Barbara had a lot of friends from her many years of teaching, some of which I became acquainted with over the years, as well as her friends from grade, junior high, and high school.  She had a close relationship with her parents and grandparents, and Ruth and Chuck were always so nice to me. Barbara was so independent, and loved to travel and shop.  She was an avid reader, as you would know if you ever listened to her telephone answering message, which went something like "Presently, I am reading a book.  Please leave your name and number and I will get back to you as soon as possible."   She loved being with people and talking to people on the phone.   I will miss Barbara a lot.

Golly, it just doesn't seem right going to redskin functions and not seeing Barbara's smiling face and cheery attitude greating everyone who came. I always enjoyed being with her, she was so well read and traveled--conversations with her were never dull. I always learned something new. I feel so badly that she suffered so during her last months. I have seen first hand the raveges of Ovarian Cancer. I work closely with the Ovrian Cancer Symptom Awareness organization. It is a wonderful organization that is working with physicians and veteranians to educate the public on the symptoms of Ovarian Cancer, since it is one of the silent killers. This organization also supports the training of ovarian cancer sniffing dogs.  I will add Barbara's name to the memorial list of those women honored and remembered. Barbara will always be missed.
