Over the years Barbara was an active member at several area parishes over the including St Francis De Sales, Incarnation and St. Albert the Great. Barbara loved spending time entertaining family and friends. She was well known as an excellent cook (mainly because she tried new recipes out on the family before serving them to friends!) She loved working in her gardens and sharing her flowers and vegetables. She was a friend to her birds and kept them well fed while constantly battling the squirrels. Barbara enjoyed many hours on the golf course and was fortunate to play all over the world.
