We are saddened by the sudden passing of our friend Barb. Her humility, concern for others and quiet faith were a light in our congregation. She was always so grateful for the prayers of others. We will miss her and pray for the peace and comfort of those closest to her. Doug and Janet Ward.

Condolence from Rachelle Hawthorne and family on October 27th, 2016 11:17 AM

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I worked with Barb at Monsignor J.J. O’Brien. We shared a room, many laughs and stories. My kids and I went to visit her out at the acreage and she was such a ray of sunshine. If only more people has the enthusiasm, love, and faith she had our world would be a better place. We love you Barb. I’m so sorry you left us so soon.

Condolence from The Mertens Family on October 27th, 2016 11:34 AM

We are so sorry to hear of the sudden loss of Barb. She was always quick to inquire as to how others were doing and downplayed any concern for herself. She had a soft spot for kids and dogs. We will miss her dearly but trust in God’s faithfulness, knowing she is with Him now.

Condolence from Sandi Paniec on October 27th, 2016 1:23 PM

My condolences. Barb will be remembered and missed.

I was so sad to hear of Barb’s passing. Barb and I were colleagues at J.J O’Brien, she taught my Son and I like to think we were friends. She was a kind and gentle soul who respected and never judged. Barb and I had many laughs together, my regret now will be that we lost touch over the past year. Our prayers go out to all of Barb’s family, take comfort in knowing she loved you all and spoke of you often.

Condolence from Debbie Sharpe on October 28th, 2016 6:18 PM

I am surely saddened by the passing of this considerate woman. I felt we had a connection. We hugged on the road in Bridlewood. She expressed her worry about loved ones. This speaks to her character- kind and considerate. My thoughts are with you, her family. I will say many prayers for you as you travel through this difficult time.

Condolence from Bev Dye on October 29th, 2016 12:01 AM

I am so very sorry to hear of the sudden loss of Barb. Barb was always friendly to me and always spoke positively about other people . Barb enjoyed cooking and baking for other people.
