Barbara will be greatly missed by all. She loved crafts, baking, reading, game books, game shows and was an incredible seamstress. But she loved her children and grandchildren and extended family most of all. She had an infectious laugh that filled your heart. She loved attending the annual Fisher Fall Frolic that was just held in October. Barbara was a member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles and had volunteered at Deborah Heart and Lung Hospital.

A remembrance luncheon will be held in the spring at the family’s convenience.
