I had the honor of calling Barbara my friend for over 50 years! One word to describe Barbara was Sunshine❤️ Just talking to Barbara on the phone made your day a little brighter! Barbara was such a special lady, I will forever miss her infectious laugh! No matter what she was going through Barbara always wanted to make sure everyone else was doing good! I’m just sorry Donnie & Barbara didn’t make it to GA for their visit but I’ll be eternally grateful for the time we did have together hin VA.❤️ My warmest thoughts and prayers go out Donnie, Anna and their family! Thank you for sharing your Ray of Sunshine🙏

I had the great pleasure of teaching with Barb at Point O’View and wanted to say how sad I was to hear of her passing. She was a steadfast advocate for children and went above and beyond in her duties as a teacher. She, often accompanied by her husband Donnie, was at every after school event that was held at POV, dances, Bingo, plays, PTA nights and more. You could always count on Barb to be there helping out in anyway she could, especially cutting all those cakes. We had one big thing in common. We were both born on April 27th at De Paul hospital in Norfolk, although I came around 4 years later. We always acknowledged our “twin ship” whenever our special day arrived. She wore a constant smile and an open heart. The world was a better place because of Barb. She will be missed by all those who knew her.
