Success in life can be defined in many ways. Barbara ranks at the very top because her success came by giving to others so they could become successful persons. She was a devoted wife to Jack her husband, and mother to her children. Family always came first. She was strong in her faith, and gave graciously both her time and musical talent to her church. She enjoyed a life of joy with family and friends. I know from talking with her as she was slowly passing on, she felt secure in the wonderful giving life she had lived. We will all miss her.
With love, Bob & Cathi Schodorf, Mollie, Ginny

Barbara was a wonderful neighbor and piano teacher for my three children. She was engaged with her neighbors and active in the church, and she will be missed by the Shea family! I always admired the obvious love between Barbara and Jack, made apparent by the look of sincere affection on Jack's face whenever he looked at her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, Jack, as you mourn the loss of such an amazing life partner. XO
