Barbara loved spending time with her family and friends. She was happiest when she had a full house. Barbara was an insurance agent and retired from that. Then, she enjoyed selling Avon products, just so she could get out and talk with her friends, until she wasn’t able to get around anymore. Barbara was a religious woman that kept her faith and love in God, knowing that through Him all things are possible.

    Barbara was a very dear friend and wonderful lady. She is now with her husband in Heaven. I will miss her very much.

    Remembering Barbara as a special lady that I developed a friendship with over the years as a customer at Sears in Harrisburg. I know she will be missed. Thoughts and prayers will be with the family.
