Barbara was a loving and providing mother who loved her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Barbara loved traveling to Las Vegas and Santa Fe New Mexico. She loved her country music, hallmark channel programs, and Little House on the Prairie. She loved to cook breakfast and drink her coffee in the morning. One of her favorite meals was cooking beef kidney for her to share with her granddaughter Santana who liked them just as much. She loved to buy a loaf of warm French Bread because it reminded her of her mother when she would make fresh baked bread when she was young. Barbara loved to prove everyone wrong in her own funny ways. Special Thank You to her caretakers throughout her life and in her last moments in the Hospital. We, in her family know that she is looking down on us from heaven and giving us a “thumbs up” to let us know everything will be okay…
