    Deepest Sympathies to her family.
    I knew her from BHS. She was a really nice person and a friend to all.

    I knew Barbara in grade school. When we were in 4th grade, I got the part of Red Riding Hood in our class operetta. The music teacher thought I couldn’t carry a tune so Barb sang the songs and I mimed them. She had a really pretty voice. From that time on, as much as I love to sing, I knew singing wasn’t in the cards for me. Barbara was always a sweet friendly girl. My condolences to your family. Judy Lauer Huff

    I was about 5 years old when my brother started dating Barb. I fell in love with her from the very beginning. She played with me when I was little, she was my counselor when I was in my teenage years and a wonderful friend as I grew older. I can barely remember Ron and Barbs wedding at the Buffalo Inn in South Park but I remember her making me feel so special being the little brother. My brother called her Snuffy back then. He had cut out a comic of Snuffy Smith and paper clipped it to the visor of his car. I have great memories of the times spent together, Wonderful Christmas Eves, Thanksgiving dinners (especially the one at Sugar Shack, in Sigel, PA) and watching Football games. Ronnie and Barb were always a lot of fun to be around. They were good for each other and the love and respect they shared was so inspirational to me. I will always have them close to my heart. I will certainly miss them but I know they will always be with me in all those priceless memories.

    Halle so sorry to hear of your moms passing. I sent a card to her when your dad passed but I sent to your address over in Cranberry Providence Court. Please accept our sympathy. Anything we can do let us know. Many years were spent with your dad, uncle and grandfather.

    I dearly loved Barb; my best friend of 65 years. She is gone but never forgotten. She is now in heaven with the love of her life and parents
    My forever friend.

  • Parrish Smith

    I was blessed to call Barb, Mom. She was beautiful inside and out. Always wanting to serve her family. Some of my favorite memories were hanging out after dinner. Her yard was always bursting with beautiful flowers and plants and her home was cozy, tidy and inviting. What I loved most was how she loved her husband and he loved her. They truly enjoyed doing life together and were in love ‘till the end. She loved her grandchildren, always making sure that they felt seen and heard. She would always send birthday cards and greeting cards to her children and grandchildren, she was very thoughtful. She loved giving gifts to others. Her witty personality and her endearing personality will be missed by all who knew her. She is now dancing with Jesus and her Smitty in Heaven. I am forever grateful for the 29 years she has been in my life.

  • Larry and Nina King

    Sooo sorry to see you leave us Barb. I wish we could have had more time together. We’ll try to look after the Baton Rouge front if you’ll put a good word in for us when you get to the gate. Bless you for all you’ve done while you were here it has been wonderful knowing you and Ron for these years. Amen to you

  • Krista Dignazio

    I was blessed to know Barb for just a short time since moving back to Pittsburgh after her husband’s death. Barb quickly became a beloved member of our neighborhood gatherings and I loved her sense of humor! To have humor when suffering many physical ailments was her super power. Much love to Hallie & Jason!
