May Barb Rest In Peace. I will always remember her generous, selfless heart and fierce love for her family. Sending strength and love to those closest to Barb. May you cherish in her beautiful memory forevermore. Xo
I feel honored and blessed to have had her in my life all these years. She was the epitome of a true friend. She was my champion, cheerleader and confidante. She could always put a spin on things that would send us both into fits and squeals of laughter and always held me accountable and to high standards. I will miss her. Greatly and for my whole life. I love you my friend. Thank you for all you gave to my life.

But laugh and talk of me as if I were beside you there...
‘twas heaven here with you."

We will never forget Barb and her wonderful spirit. We pray for peace for her family and friends.
we would like to express our deepest sympathy. May all your good memories out weigh your sadness during this difficult time.
Barb was one of the kindest, most loyal, selfless human beings I've ever known. She was a true friend to me all of my life, and to anyone who was fortunate to have her love and friendship in their life. She was tirelessly devoted to her children in ways they may not have know, but surely felt. She was in my wedding and stood by me through thick and thin, always, as my other dear friend Brenda pointed out, with a sense of humor and honesty that gave you both courage and wisdom to carry on. She helped any and anyone who needed shelter, kindness, support, a meal, or a roof over their head. She tirelessly cared for her mother and our dear friend Kris Biesler Waldsmith through their battles with cancer, always hiding her pain, quietly so not to hurt anyone else who might be suffering. She was an inspiration to me. One of the finest human beings one could meet. And she, like so many truly good people, did so quietly without seeking attention or ever aware of her gift to others. I once told her how her example shaped my life to give to others and strengthened me, and she was surprised, never realizing the impact she had on the world. I last spoke to her last Mother's Day. I will miss her all the days of my life....dear Sarah, Paula, and Michael, my heart breaks for you. God Bless your Mother's sweet soul. Email me, email@example.com All my love. Lisa A. Leitter
