  2. Sincere condolences on the loss of Barb. I first met Barb in grade 1 at Senator Buchanan School and knew her throughout our educational years all the way to graduation from Winston Churchill. She had a good sense of humor and was a lot of fun. I remember very distinctly her telling a joke to the class when we were in grade 5. It had the word “damn” in it. By today’s standards, the joke is pretty benign and tame but in 1963 the poor teacher was horrified and almost keeled over with shock. I will never forget that. Again, sincere condolences. I’m sure you will miss her greatly.

    I just got back in town and was so sorry to hear of Barb’s passing. I was one of her “golf buddies” and have many fond memories of our times together out on the courses. I’ll always remember not letting her have her par on a “gimmie” – we shared lots of laughter and good times. I will miss her. My deepest sympathy to the Family.
