  • Family of Barbara,
    I am very sorry for your loss. I work at the Village of Kensington where Barbara resided since early last year. Barbara was always such a happy person, always smiling and knew how to brighten anyones day. I enjoyed going into her room and talking with her frequently, she was such a pleasant woman to be around. Barbara loved her family very much and often talked about them. She truly will be missed.

  • Ann, Marie,Tommy and Ben,
    My heartfelt sympathy and prayers are with all of you at this time. I was sorry to hear that your Dad is not well either. Some reminiscing is
    on my mind about all the canasta and spade card games we would play any chance we would get. All of the skating parties at Bassler’s and let’s not forget the trampoline. We had some really good times growing up. Hope all is well with all of you and you will be in my prayers.
    Love,
    Carol Jones Schott
    Blue Mountain Road- growing up!

  • What can I say about my Aunt Barbara. She has always been a part of my life. The years that she and Uncle Benny spent the winters in Florida are among my fondest memories. We laughed and ate our way through “tax season”. She was a tireless worker in my office and just a joy to be around. She was always up for anything we could come up with – be it gambling on a cruise ship or just staying up late to chat. One of my favorite people will sorely be missed. My love and prayers are with her family,my cousins and Uncle Benny, her beloved husband, and my love and respect for her will always remain. Now that I’ve just lost another aunt yesterday, I just know that they both are up in heaven, the angels that they are, having a ball and smiling down at all of us. Love always, Angela
