Barb worked at Sporlan Value for over 30 years.  She loved attending her card club and sewing club as well as playing bunco and bingo.  Barb and Chuck loved having student teachers and nurses live with them. Barb enjoyed working with the Oasis program at school helping children with their reading.

Barbs family was always a top priority.  She treasured anytime she had with them.  Her grands and great grands were the light of her life.  She enjoyed attending as many of their activities as possible.  When it got where she couldn’t go, Barb waited for them to call to tell her about their games.  Barb was “Grandma Barb” to many that weren’t her own.
