Barbara Lynn (Mullins) Salt, age 62, of Holt, MI, passed away March 3, 2023, at her home.
Barbara was born in Lansing, MI, on October 5, 1960, the daughter of Sharon and Marvin Mullins.
Barbara is survived by her mother, Sharon Mullins of Traverse City, MI; brother, Timothy (Janice) Mullins of Holt, MI; sister, Suzanne Mullins of Lansing, MI; son, Cameron (Amy) Salt of Holt, MI; nieces, Melanie (Brian) Bartley of Hartland, MI and Elizabeth (Adam) Mullins of Kalamazoo, MI; and her dearest partner, Jeff Bement of Holt, MI.
Throughout Barbara’s life she has been a beacon of light in the hardest of times. In 2004, her daughter, Alysha Lynn Salt, passed away. In the wake of this loss, Barbara used her natural strength of spirit and determination to hold her family together. She deeply loved the ones in her life and was sure to put them before herself.
Barbara retired from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan after a long and fulfilling career with the company. During her career she made many friends, many of whom became like members of her family. She gained great satisfaction from treating customers with the love and respect that she gave to everyone.
In recent years Barbara enjoyed working to build a cabin in Mesick, MI, with her partner Jeff Bement. The two of them spent many lovely days at their property. She was also able to return to her favorite vacation destination, Anna Maria Island, FL. She had a long history of visiting the island with her family. For Barbara, Anna Maria Island was heaven on earth, where she built many wonderful memories.
A memorial will be held for close family at the family cottage in late spring. It will be a celebration of her life and the joy and laughter she brought to so many. She will be dearly missed by family, friends, and those who knew her.
