Barbara lived a full life as a wonderful mother, homemaker and tireless community volunteer. Her hands were seldom still and she served her church and community with humor and the rare ability to get things done. She received a Lifetime of Service plaque from the Berlin Center United Methodist Church. Barbara was also the co-founder of the Berlin Center Historical Society.
Most of all she loved her family and instilled in her children the ability to laugh and work hard. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.
