I was so sorry to hear about Aunt Barbara Jean's passing. I saw Aunt Roberta at mom's funeral (Molly Bennett). I have many fond memories of Aunt Barbara Jean and they involve laughter. May you find comfort in your memories.

Love you all.

My Grandma (Lottie Marten) lived at Dogwood Terrace where Barbara lived.My Grandma would go downstairs and talk with some of the ladies and Barbara was one of them and she thought a lot of her. Grandma passed away 3-1-08 SO they are together again. I met her a few times and she seemed to be a dear lady. Both ladies enjoyed there gab session every night. I know you will miss her like I do grandma but remember she had a lot of friends at her apartment building. May god send you comfort at this time of your loss.

Barbara was a very nice lady. She came to one of our family gatherings in Hagerstown and we enjoyed what she had to share with us.
My condolences to the family.
