So, sorry for her families loss. Worked with Barb at SPE for years and it was a great education and a great time. Barb lived to share all her knowledge of business and life. Big smile and warmth is my first thought of this women. She was a lady and class act. She was the " Jackie O" of Battle Creek I would tell her. She'd laugh her heartfelt laugh and say" Oh, Angie". Just a great lady. She will be missed by so many.

My sympathy to Barb's family on your loss. She was a lovely person, I knew her from Someplace Else and I was her insurance agent for many years. She and Paul were very special.

I worked with Barb at SPE for several years and it was was always great to be around her. Barb was kind, caring and always helpful. She definitely was the true essence of a lady always. She was helpful to me outside of work with my personal endeavors and always inspiring me. She will be greatly missed! Pam

Dear family, I am so sorry for your loss. Barbara became a friend when she came to me for facial services. We grew to become quite fond of each other. I recently saw Barb at the Kool Center and she was as dynamic as ever (last year). Barb was a person that no matter how long it had been since you saw her, the great smile and hug was always the same. She will be missed by many. Judie

Oh, Barb, I will always remember that smile, that smell of such wonderful food coming through your back door, the "sit down" newspaper column interview I wrote about you...and thinking "My, oh my, what a wonderful, vibrant woman," And the REAL delight of picking up Shanon, was our chats in the kitchen while she got ready!!! What a lady. What a life of joy, care, concern you lived, My Dear.
