Barb was lifelong resident of Fairfield. She was wonderful a mother and grandmother. Barb enjoyed playing cards and working crossword puzzles. When each grandchild and great grandchild was born it was a tradition for Barb to make them each a personalized baby quilt.

One of the things she loved most important was being able to spend time with her family and going to her grandchildren and great grandchildren activities.
