My favorite memory of Aunt Barb occurred this past summer. Wayne and I were sitting at the kitchen table when her and Aunt Kathy walked in. It was after one of Barb's doctor's appointments and Barb was determined that they had got her height all wrong. ( I know that everyone reading this not only can hear the irritation in her voice but can also picture it. ). We got out a pencil and had Barb back up to a wall so she could see for herself. Yes, indeed the doctor's office had "shorted" her of a few precious centimeters. She was so happy and relieved to have regained her height back in a matter of a couple of hours...the look on her face was priceless!! Even though, her personality could be intimidating ( at times, frankly, she could scare the crap out of me), she possessed one of the kindest and most giving hearts I have ever met. Her laugh was infectious and she loved her family fiercely. I truly loved her and am grateful to have had her in our lives.

Scott and I were very blessed to be able to really get to know Aunt Barb these last 5 years when Gma needed help. She spent a lot of time helping taking care of gma and getting all the doctors to do their job :-). Scott and I were talking about all the times we were down doing a lot of projects for her in regards to her house to make thing either simpler for her or just doing overall repairs. After we finished our project for Barb we always sat at her table for hours discussing politics, news and pretty much everything including the kitchen sink. We laughed, we cried, we always had a great time. There was so much to Aunt Barb that not everyone knew nor got the opportunity to enjoy. She was always extremely grateful for any help she got and was always there whenever we needed her. Scott and I will miss her greatly and will also miss the short phrase she always said before a comment or opinion, "You know what...." while pointing with her bent pointing finger. Oh how we always laughed when "The Finger" presented itself. We both love you so very much Barb and will always miss you.

"Barbara Ann" - I still can not believe that if I were to stop today I would not find you sitting at the table (with a cigarette) waiting for our usual discussion on family, how our lives were or were not going, and about you know who in the White House. Over the past few years, you and I have spent many hours either driving to appointments, waiting for appointments or those unforeseen ambulance trips to Madison. Thought those difficult health years had past and you were finally turning the corner.....back in your own home, reading, and interjecting your thoughts and opinions by the "raising of your hand & pointing of the finger". We all then knew "Barbara Ann" had a point she wanted to make and she told it as she saw it. This was our "Barbara Ann" or "BB" as she was known by her extended family (the "Nursing" girls). I thank those who were there for my sister during the good and difficult times (and you know who you are). As I move forward, I know you will be looking down laughing (hopefully) and, of course, pointing your finger as we remember our "Barbara Ann" and the times together around the kitchen table. A treasured chapter in MY life has closed but " Barbara Ann" you will always be a part of me. Love - Kathy

I loved working with Barb. She made nursing fun when the nights were long and the work was hard. I had the pleasure of being a CNA under her guidance. Learned so much from her. RIP my friend.
