Barbara was a one-of-a-kind woman. If she didn’t warm her way into your heart with her loving and caring personality, she certainly did through your belly. Cooking and baking for others was one of her favorite things to do. She loved feeding people and always liked finding out what your favorite thing was so she could surprise you with it one day. She was married to the love of her life, William, for 51 years. He was her world just as she was his. They built a beautiful life together and had two children, Terry and Shannon. She loved her kids, but her grandchildren were some of the greatest treasures of her life. Taylor, Eric, Danielle and Catie all knew that no matter how many times they may say I love you Nana, her response would always be, I love you more! She was a Wife, Mother, and Nana and she loved it. She was a Nana to anyone who needed her! She loved spending time with family and making memories to last a lifetime. She loved life and thanked God for every day that she was blessed with. If you knew her, you knew what it was like to be loved.
