    I have had the pleasure of working with Barbara for 14 yrs at Jewett St and will always have fond memories of her. I will always remember Barb’s colorful language and the hugs and kisses she gave. Barb was always ready to have cookies and coffee instead of regular meals and always called us by different names. You were one of a kind Barbara. Pat loves you and I’m gonna miss you.

    I will never forget Barbara. She always made me smile and laugh at the funny things she said and the names she gave everyone. She would always say “Hi, how are you?” when she greeted you and would put her arm out for a hug. She loved her coffee and sweets and would she would be so happy if you brought her a magazine. She will be missed at Jewett St. and she will always be in my heart. Sydney loves you Barbara.
