My heartfelt sympathy in the loss of Barbara. I was in several of Barbara’s theatre productions and many fundraising events. Barbara treated each cast member as family. I enjoyed many conversations with her and her sister Jane. RIP

Barbara was the first to cast me in a theater production. I was only about 12 at the time, but I credit her with what would become a career in the arts. She will always hold a special place in my heart.

Was so sorry to year of Barbara's passing. Barb was one of my good friends in elementary and high school. We lost contact but bumped into each other in Ireland about 15 years ago. She lived down the street from me and I spent many hours in her home. My condolences to her family.
