Send Condolence

To Barbara’s family…my mother lives down the hall from your mom and I lived in the building for most of Covid. I would often see your mom walking and she was always cheerful, friendly and kind. She surely worked hard to keep her body in motion. I will miss her smiling face when I visit. May her memory be for a blessing. Hilary Wolfe

Barbara was a wonderful person that we called Aunt Barb. We will miss her warm glowing friendly smile that greeted you whenever she saw you. She cared about you, and it was apparent. Her marriage to Richard was one I will always remember. They raised 3 wonderful children who reflect the values of their parents. Aunt Barb will be missed. My deepest condolence to John, Amy and Ann.

“Baruch Dayan ha'emet” Blessed is the True Judge. It is with much sadness that I learned of Barbara’s passing today. Barbara and I were friends at Chatham and spent a summer together in New York. We shared a love for golf and took some lessons together during our time at Chatham, Though we lost track for many years, I was so happy to reconnect with Barbara in Miami few years ago and had an opportunity to meet her beautiful family. Sending heartfelt condolences to all who loved this lovely soul. May her memory be for a blessing and may she Rest In Peace.
