Obituary

Mrs. Barbara Elizabeth Ulmer, age 90, of Ellisville, Mo., a former Jefferson City resident passed away Wednesday, October 21, 2020 at the Missouri Baptist Medical Center in St. Louis, Mo.

Barb was born on April 3, 1930 in Sharon, Pa., the daughter of William J. and Elizabeth B. (Weisen) Fette. She was married on November 18, 1961 in Sharon, Pa. to Arnold A. Ulmer, who preceded her in death on July 14, 1979.

Barb was a graduate of Sharon High School and Shenango Valley Institute.

Barb was employed by Westinghouse Electric Corporation in Sharon, Pa. as an Administrative Assistant for over fifteen years. Barb and her husband, Arnold, moved to Jefferson City in 1975. In 1976 she became the secretary treasurer at First United Methodist Church. Barb served in this capacity for 16 years, until she retired in 1992 to take care of her grandchildren, Laura and Brad. She moved to the St. Louis area after an illness to be closer to her family.

A woman of faith, Barb was a member of the First United Methodist Church and was active with First United Methodist Women’s Group for many years.

Barb will be remembered by all who knew her as a very social person. She genuinely enjoyed visiting with people. Every morning, Barb looked forward to her morning walk and her morning devotions. Barb was an avid reader, who also loved doing puzzles and playing cards. She was definitely considered the ultimate card shark when playing with her family. She looked forward to traveling to visit her daughter, Beth, in Florida and North Carolina and had great memories from those trips.

Everyone who knew Barb will tell you she was completely devoted to her family, especially to her grandchildren. She was a constant fixture at their football games and equestrian events and all their friends knew “Grandma Barbie”

Survivors include: one son, Bruce Ulmer (wife, Amy) of St. Albans, Mo; one daughter, Beth Ard (husband, Richard Umbarger) of Charlotte, North Carolina; and two grandchildren, Laura Curcuru (husband, Austen) and Bradley Ulmer, both of St. Louis, Mo.

Barb was preceded in death by her parents; her loving husband; one sister, Margaret Knapp; and three brothers, William Fette, Robert Fette, and Richard Fette.

Visitation will be at Freeman Mortuary from 1:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. Sunday, October 25, 2020. Friends are welcomed to attend the visitation and the family has requested that anyone in attendance wear a protective mask.

Funeral services will be conducted at 2:00 p.m. Sunday, October 25, 2020 in the Freeman Chapel with the Reverend Trevor Dancer officiating. Graveside services and interment will be held at Riverview Cemetery in Jefferson City, Mo.

A webcast of her service will begin at 1:45 p.m. Sunday for friends to view that are not able to attend by going to the "photos and videos" tab of this page and scrolling down to the webcasting link. Friends may mail sympathy cards to the funeral home or leave condolences online to be given to her family.

Funeral arrangements are under the care of Freeman Mortuary, 915 Madison Street, Jefferson City, Mo. 65101.
