Anyone that knew Barb was struck by her illuminating light. She was passionate about her career as a Speech Pathologist and her time working at St. Francis Hospital.

Barb always found a way to cherish every moment big and small. She valued family and togetherness and enjoyed dance, art, meditating, cooking and being around loved ones.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Services and Interment are Private. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions be made to The Bili Project Foundation GI Cancers Alliance, 303 Fuller Road, Suite 1, Central Square, New York, NY 13036, or a charity of one's choice.
