  1. Such great sadness came to my heart when I heard the passing of Barb. Such joy she brought to my life while working with her at the Minot Walmart. I recently was taking about her and her tootsie rolls she always handed out. Barb was a kind sweet soul and I am glad I can call her friend. So sorry for your loss.

      Thank you so much! Mom thought of you as a special friend; she often talked about the fun times you ladies had!!❤

    My sympathy to all of Barb’s family and friends. I went to school and lived in Lansford and she always had a smile for everyone. She also enjoyed a good laugh. My husband, Bob, was a buddy and classmate of Myron and John. I chuckled that the obit mentioned her enjoying being a homemaker as her mom, Lois kept an immaculate house with n’ere a thing out of place. Hugs, JoAnn Triplett Savelkoul

    Barb was such a beautiful lady with a big heart for all. May she rest in peace with Dennis. We thought she had moved back to ND. Thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends. She must have been an awesome Grandmother, she will be missed.

      Mom and Dad really enjoyed spending time with you and Kerm. We find peace in their being together again.❤❤

  5. Several relatives of mine had gathered at the farm to meet my visiting “friend” from Texas. When I called home to tell my folks that Marilyn and I had eloped, I heard Barbara in the background holler , “John got married?!” in her loud cheerful voice. She was always a joy to be around from the time I was a little kid. Cousin Barb coming to visit was the highlight of my day. She had us over for supper one night and I remember our 2 year-old pounding on the little toy piano and what a kick Mitch got out of that. She taught my new wife how to fix rhubarb, which my Texas bride was a stranger to. I talked to her a few times by phone at the assisted living and she was so proud of Mitch and Michelle and their families.

  6. To all who loved Barb
    Its a sad day for everyone who knew Barb to say goodbye! She was a joy to know and a blessing to be a sister in Christ. She will truely be missed, but am so thankful she Knew The Lord and is in heaven with Jesus, what a joyous reunion that must have been on March 2!!! Her family was everything to her, you were all deeply loved. I pray The Lord will comfort you all in the days and months ahead and know she is so happy where she is!!! Love Barbie

  7. Barb’s laugh came directly from the center of her heart. Instantly, you knew she loved and cared for you, and would do anything for you. I know she always cared for me, but I don’t believe she had any idea how much she meant in my life. Barb, in heaven, Thank You so much! Rest In Peace. Say Hello to Denny for me.

  8. Beautiful service for such a wonderful, kind and fun friend. The good memories are many. Deepest condolences to Mitch,Michelle and your families. Love you Barb. 💓

    Again, so sorry for your loss. She was such a great lady! We were honored to stay at her house on one of our motorcycle trips for a couple days year’s ago (and to see you both too) and were able to see her twice at the living assistant home and to be able to talk with her on the phone. So glad we were able to do that to be able to keep those memories with us. She will be so missed. May God give you all peace and comfort during this time.

  10. I am sorry to hear about your loss of your mother. She was a sweet lady to me I remember the snowmobile parties we had. I know it’s hard to accept that they are gone but they are always in your heart and mind
    She is with my folks and your dad. They are planning the next snowmobile party. Haha
