Our hearts are heavy and saddened at Barb’s passing. She holds an incredibly special place in my heart and of my children’s. We became close after my son was born in 2000 and she decided he needed to learn to swim in her pool. He was 6 months when he started and he swam every summer until we moved when he was 10. I loved those cheery phone calls asking when we were coming to swim. She was an incredibly gracious person with her time and life’s wisdom as we would sit pool side nearly every week in the summer. I recall the day that we had 14 kids in the pool (she was a Godsend to stay at home moms!!!) and she relished in the joy, the laughter, and sheer fun they were having when she wasn’t busy counting heads. Through our conversations, I came to love her dearly and treasured our time together. I’m sorry I cannot be with you Saturday, but please know Im thinking of you and that your mother/grandmother was a true blessing in my life.

Barb was a really good person and lots of fun to be with. We are glad that she was able to be near Jenny in her later years. Jenny did a great job overseeing the care of Barb and we are grateful for that.
Their Okemos house, their pool and their St Luke friends were important to Barb and Stewart. They both were great entertainers. We are blessed to have known them through church at the end of their life.

Barb was a ray of sunshine for each of us. Her faithfulness in registering children for Vacation Bible School for many years was an interaction all of us looked forward to. She was meticulous with the record keeping and counting the donations. She was active in LWML and other church functions – always willing to pitch in and help. She has a special place in our memories and hearts. JoAnne and Walt Holz
