  1. So sorry to hear this shocking news! Barby was such a vibrant loving person….she touched so many lives in a positive way! Hadn’t seen her in awhile but can see her smile and hear that amazing laugh of hers as if it was yesterday. . My condolences to John and entire family and pray that you’ll find comfort and peace in time.

  2. I miss you so much already Barb. Our phone calls I will miss forever. I met you when we both worked at Zenith in Sioux City back in 1973 so we’ve been friends a long time. I gave you many rides home from work in my Nova you loved. Fly High with the Angels and watch over me. I am going through some scares right now, heart and possible cancer again I found out 7/29/2022. Love you forever. Joyce.

  3. Today I learned of your passing. So very sorry.
    Barby is bound upon the gossamer wings of moonbeam and sunlight.  And even though we’re but a breath away from the face of God, you can hear her whisper through the veil, “This is not goodbye, it’s merely a pause until we meet again.”

  4. Dennis and I are so very sorry and shocked to hear of Barby’s passing! She was one of the sweetest ladies We have ever met!
    John, we offer our condolences to you and pray for healing and strength in the days to come.
