    My deepest sympathy to the family. Barbara was my classmate and friend. We were in choir together and along with Peggy Bolls Bailey and I we sang as a trio. Barbara was a sweet, very talented, and loving lady. Love and prayers for the family!❤️🙏🏻

  2. Barbara made my crochet angels for my office Christmas tree. I will always cherish these homemade angels with love . May she rest in peace. She will be remembered as the “bread lady” and the awesome cheese balls at Christmas time. She was very special person. She will be missed.

  3. My mind floods with memories as my eyes flood with tears. I was a young boy when my mom (Barbara’s sister) passed away and she became like a mom to me. We spent endless hours playing Polly Anna and being with her and my cousins was such a great joy. She was a true Blessing and anyone who knew was blessed.
    I miss you Aunt Bobbie!!!

  4. So very sorry for you and your family Rita. May your mom Rest In Peace and May God provide you all with Comfort

  5. I am sorry to hear of Barbara’s or “Aunt Bobbie’s” passing. I spent a lot of time at her and Uncle H’s house as a child when I visited “the country”. I suspect that she was happy to be reunited with Uncle H and other family members. Hugs and prayers to Rita, James, and the rest of the family.

  6. So very sorry to hear the news of the passing of Aunt Bobbie. Many memories at her house playing games, eating her delicious bread, and just talking🌻. She is now rejoicing with Mama and Papa G, her brothers and sisters and her precious H.C.💖. I love you and so happy to have had the chance to spend time with you🌻. Tell my Leslie I miss her so much 🌻. I will miss you and the time we spent together over all of these years💖💖
