Barbara Ann's Tribute Wall

Tributes (6):

Please note: if you just submitted a tribute, it is pending approval.
    • When we were children and the family would go camping at Perch Lake, Barb and I would cross the lake in a row boat. Me rowing and Barb playing guitar and singing. She was the cool cousin I wanted to emulate. As adults, Barb was the rallying supporter for the entire family. If there was ever a wedding, anniversary or funeral, Barb & Greg were there together to show their support. We will always remember her smile, her sharp wit, her laughter and how she made us laugh too. Greg, her children, and her grandchildren were at the center of her communications and she shared photos and stories that made it clear they were here pride and joy in life. I will miss all of it. We are brokenhearted to lose you Barb, but your memory and your zest will be with us forever. Rest in Peace Dear Cousin.

    • Rest in Peace, beautiful lady. You were a gift to this world. My sincerest condolences to Greg and the family during this most difficult time. May you find peace and joy in the memory of your beautiful angel.

    • So sorry to hear of the loss of Barb. I’m sure the girls are up to some thing fun up in heaven. They both were always laughing and having a good time. Now they can have that Miller lite together that Jeanne always wanted. Thinking of all of you and wish you comfort in the days to come.

    • So sad for the loss of this wonderful woman on earth. She loved life and her smile always lit up a room and the hallways at 3M. Heaven has gained an Angel. Thoughts and prayers for her family and close friends! RIP

    • The world has lost a beautiful soul. I will miss that sweet always smiling face. She faced her battles with grace. I know Jesus open his arms to her when she entered heavens gate. Bless her family as they grieve through this tremendous loss. Hopefully her strength will help them all through this. Much love to those she left behind.
