    Barbara was my next door neighbor here in Simpsonville S.C. Although I only knew her for 5 years she was a wonderful, sweet and very funny lady. I remember the first time we invited them over to our home, which I believe was Christmas time of 2015 and was so astonished how funny and talkative she was! She loved her birds which we were fortunate to experience them as well. I will miss her!

    I am so very sorry about Barbara’s passing. This is a shock and so very sad. Barbara was such a character and I will always love her for the work she did on my family genealogy, she was our families “Auntie B”. Her spirit, love and passions are represented in all her family; who she loved deeply. I will miss you Barbara and am forever grateful that our lives crossed and that I had the blessed opportunity to have my Auntie B-Thank you!

    Dear Frank and all of Barbara’s family, know that we are praying for your comfort at this difficult time. I knew her from junior high through high school. She was bright and outgoing. She was my first date. She asked me to a Girl Scout hayride and square dance at Mystery Farm. We remained friends through our school years. Speak of her often and revel in your happy memories.
