If Barbara were asked to describe herself, she would find it difficult because of her humility. Yet, Barbie possessed the highest level of dignity and strength to the very core of her being. Barbara was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, Kuma and friend. Being a person of tremendous faith and love, positivity came naturally to Barbie. She saw the sunshine through the clouds; the silver lining bordering any challenge. Barbie was the engine that kept the family running at all times and worked tirelessly to keep the family foundation strong. Selfless, generous, kind, gentle, and always full of wisdom, Barbie lived a life of truth and inspired all those around her to do the same. Barbie was a fighter to the very end. Her love of cooking, music, travel, singing and dancing showed her intense love of life. Her beautiful smile and laugh were contagious and she will be greatly missed by many.
