Memories Timeline


  1. Barbara — You will be missed. I’m so sorry I wasn’t able to see you before you passed on. I love you deeply and thank you for being you. —Jeff

  2. Barbara and I met when we were in the 3rd grade. We grew up together and were in each others weddings. I have so many good memories of her. Surely God has prepared a special place for someone as kind and gentle as Barbara.

  3. I met Barb at work at Weirton Steel. Barb is truly a sweet, loving, caring person. She never complained about her illness. I’m sure the angels took her into heaven and will watch over her. She had a special place in everyones heart that new her.

  4. To one of the kindest, most loving persons I have ever met. You will be missed more than you know.

  5. Barb, One of God’s newest Angels… You will be deeply missed… I was truly blessed to have known you and worked with you … I know you will be looking down on all of us…and watching over us…always with that beautiful smile.. GOD BLESS Joanne

  6. Please accept our deepest sympathies. Barb helped us out with a couple of insurance problems,(and I believe she really liked doing it). She was well liked and respected in the Tin Mill, where I work.

  7. She was a great person as you can see by the many friends she had in her personal life and Weirton Steel. When I was at the lowest point in my life when I was diagonosed with breast cancer after Barb had hers, she gave me to the strength and the will power to fight it. I will always think of her and she will always hold a special place in my heart. She was an angel in my eyes.

  8. Heartfelt sympathy goes out to all of Barbara’s family. I worked with Barb and am glad I got to know her. She will be missed by so many. Sandi Gajtka

  9. My deepest sympathy to the members of Barb’s family. She was a true and honest friend to all that met her and will be missed dearly. I unfortunately was out of town at the time of her passing, but am so grateful that I was able spend time with her over the past couple of weeks.

  10. I am saddened by the loss of Barb. We went to high school together. She was always full of life. I know she’s making them laugh up in heaven.
