    • Martin,

      I just heard the sad news today. I am truly saddened to hear this. Unfortunately I never had the opportunity to meet her, but I am sure she was a bright light in your life, and the life of your family. She now is at peace, so the difficult road for you will be moving forward without her by your side. My prayers and thoughts are with you at this difficult time.

      Your friend,

    • I’m so sorry, Marty…the loss of your life partner is so sad and just plain unfair. Reading this, I learned that you have five children and some grandchildren, and I’m sure they are there for you to lean on.. I still remember our two years together on High School Bowl. You were one of the smartest kids at Mounds View, and I want you to know that I was always proud to be your teammate. Wishing you peace.

    • Barb was a bright light in this world. She was honest, funny and compassionate. She gave unconditional love to her children and family and support and care to her friends. I will miss her laugh.

    • Martin, I just wanted to send you my deepest condolences for your loss of Barb. You are in my thoughts and Prayers.

    • Barb was such a strong warrior that has inspired me since I was ~10 years old when she let me tagalong on her dates with my brother. She coached me through multiple marathons and travelled with me from China to Alaska and the French Riviera. She took care of my babe Lu. She was tough as nails and taught me the motto “How hard can it be? We’re smart women, we can figure it out” long before the days of YouTube! I miss you terribly. Sundance Walking Club and Sundance Book Club will never be the same.

    • Barb was just like a sister to us Feyereisen sisters (well minus our egos). She was with us arm in arm in all our struggles and triumphs. And on any given day, she was the favorite sister!

      I will miss B dearly, our Sundance Pass Walking Club heart-to-heart chats, our Sundance Pass Book Club frank discussions…

      And how blessed I was being able to raise my kids right next to Barb… as she loved, cared for, celebrated and worried about my kids as if they were her own.

      My heart is broken, but B’s legacy lives on in the next generation from Sundance Pass and so so many others. ❤️

    • Martin, Kailey, Bill, Tim, Hilary, and Sara,
      We are very sorry for your loss. Please know you are in our family’s thoughts and prayers. I remember Barb subbing in our school, and chaperoning some field trips. She was always friendly, kind, and supportive. May you find comfort in sharing many wonderful memories and stories of a life well lived and well loved.
      Deepest sympathies,
      Bob and Chris Curran and family

    • Aunt Barb could do anything. She had so many talents and was so generous with them— from doing taxes to making my wedding dress to snuggling babies to swimming, running, and golfing. And what a wonderful aunt, sister-in-law, mother, grandmother, and partner. Her loving spirit, humor, and many talents will live on in her amazing family to whom she was so dedicated. I’m so grateful for all she has given to our family. Sending all our love to Sundance Pass. We will be in the neighborhood soon to give physically-distanced hugs.

    • You have my deepest sympathy for your loss of Barb. I pray for peace and comfort for your family.
