Barb loved to spend time with her husband fishing in Alma, Wisconsin and vacationed there for over 50 years. She loved to keep busy and was very active in her Church, singing in the choir and performing solos.

She loved clothes and fashion, but more than anything else, she loved being a wife, mom and grandma.  She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.
