Barbara was a long serving volunteer to many charities. Her service to the NJ League for the Hard of Hearing was especially significant. Her favorite places were the beaches of Long Beach Island, NJ and Stuart, FL where finding sea glass would make her day. She was a long time active member and volunteer at Caldwell United Methodist Church. Barbara’s dedication to the 5 o’clock gimlet was renowned among family and friends.
Both her joy for life and easygoing manner will be remembered by all that knew her.
