Send Condolence

My deepest sympathy to all of Barbara’s family. She was such a wonderful and kind person that would have done anything for a person that needed her helping hand. She gave of her time freely to the Sheltie club and was certainly a core member of our group. Her heart of gold was often hidden but seen very clearly by those that truly knew her. May you RIP Barbara and play with all of the dogs at the rainbow bridge. I will greatly miss you. Nancy Conley

The world is a little less bright. My friends circle is a little smaller. Yesterday our Lord got another Angel. Prayers to the family and friends feeling this loss. There are many of us who will feel this loss very deeply. She was such a sweet, thoughtful woman who did nothing but showed love and friendship to many.

Dear Eddie, Roger, Doug, & Uncle David, I am so saddened to hear of Barbara’s passing. I spoke to her before she was in hospice, & she sounded positive & hopeful. She was more concerned about her dogs than herself. And very grateful for the loving care you gave her. I have so many wonderful memories of her & our families. So sorry for your loss. She will be missed by many. Rest In Peace , in the arms of you parents. 😇

Barbara had a love of life. She truly loved her shelties and family. Our love of gardening was another interest we shared and so loved day lily flowers. I will miss our conversations and friendship.... May heart and spirit find peace.
