I am so touched by the life Barbara lived. She married her high school sweetheart and was still in love after 44 years, served her country in the armed services, raised a family and doted on children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, faught a valiant battle against ovarian cancer, even selflessly submitting herself to tests for the benefit of others, and finally went home to rest in the arms of The Lord. The Exporter Class of 1969 has sent another representative to heaven.  Rest in peace, Barbara!  God bless her family and those who held her dear!

Sorry to hear about the passing of Barbara, she was such a sweet girl - and a good friend to all those who knew her. I remember her from growing up in Freeport, and the school days of old. She will be missed by all those who knew and loved her - and most of all : from the class of Brazosport High !
