So sorry to hear this. Barb was so much fun!! My mom and I worked at Chesebrough with her and she was a hoot! So many good memories of her and Gayle at the bowling alley and going to tournaments. My thoughts and prayers to the family during this difficult time. Thanks Barb for making it so much fun, you will be missed.
