Barbara stayed busy raising the family and working in the family owned drug stores in McCloud and Fall River, California. After her husband's retirement the couple returned to Oklahoma, living in Miami and rural Fairland where she lived the remainder of her life. Earlier this year the couple celebrated their 68th Wedding Anniversary. Barbara was fun loving and loved to travel. She was kind, gracious and loving to everyone she met. She was a joy to know. Family meant everything to Barbara and she cherished time and memories created through the years with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
