Barbara attended Longfellow Elementary School and graduated from South High School in 1953. She was a cheerleader, Student Council member, participated in Girls Choir and Pep Club. She loved her younger years of life. She was voted most typical girl her senior year. She worked at numerous places in her years of life: Westinghouse, Gatehouse Condominiums, Rudolph Investment Company, and many years at Dixie Roller Rink.
She enjoyed working word search puzzles, coloring, and watching her soap operas (don’t interrupt, lol). Her smile and spunky spirit were the joy of our lives, her spirit lives in each and every one of us. Most of all she loved her family, each and every one of them. Loved hearing and seeing her children and grandchildren’s stories. She loved collecting snowmen of all kinds, but loved the ones that played music the most. She lived a wonderful life of 86 years and will forever be missed.
