    I am so sad to hear of Barb’s passing. Seems like just yesterday I was talking to her about the kids in Giant Eagle. I have known Barb for a long time. We went to high school together and was thrilled to find out we were neighbors. Barb has ALWAYS been such a beautiful soul. Her light in this world will be greatly missed by those who were fortunate to know her.

    I HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF WORKING WITH BARB WHEN I WAS THE CHIEF NURSE AT UPMC SHADYSIDE. INDEED BARB WAS A NURSE TO THE CORE AND LOVED HELPING PATIENTS AND FRANKLY EVERYONE AROUND HER. SHE WAS AN INCREDIBLE MEMBER OF THE NURSING TEAM AND UPMC SHADYSIDE IS A BETTER PLACE FOR CARE AS A RESULT OF MANY OF BARB’S EFFORTS. I AM HONORED TO HAVE KNOWN HER AND WORKED WITH HER AS A FELLOW NURSE. REST IN PEACE OUR DEAR FRIEND.

  • Ann and Dale Krystek

    Dear Ed, Patrick, Andy and Allison, We are so very sorry for your loss that words cannot even express. She meant the world to us and can’t imagine this neighborhood without her. We hope you all find comfort in knowing how much Barb (Mom) was loved and respected by so many people. She was a true angel on earth in how caring she was to everyone in her personal and professional life. You were all so blessed to have her in your life as a wife and Mother. She is now at peace and can now be your true Guardian Angel. She will truly be missed by all. Please let us know if you need anything, anytime. Love, thoughts and prayers, Dale and Ann
