Shortly after retiring, she and her husband, Robert, relocated to Manahawkin, NJ, where she enjoyed crabbing and riding her cruiser bike around. They later moved to Manalapan, NJ. Barbara was such a sweet, loving, kind person who would always try to help others. She never had a bad thing to say about anyone. She loved playing cards (May I) and many other games with her family and friends. She enjoyed drinking Diet Pepsi and eating Tootsie Pops. She also loved to have yard sales with her sisters, where they had so much fun. Barbara also loved growing vegetable gardens. Tomato sandwiches were her specialty.
Barbara will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
