Dear Dawn & Amy...My sincere condolences to you and all of your family. I only learned of your mother's passing tonight when I saw her obituary online. I've thought of her many times in the years since we were last in touch. I still have photos of both of you when you and my son, Matthew, were children and you were our neighbors on Eyster Ave. in Spring Grove. Although my husband, Deane, passed away in Oct. 2017 I am still in that same house. May God Bless you always. With sincerest sympathy,
Jean McKercher

Barb and I worked together many years ago. I remember talking to her about some struggles over finding a church. I will never forget Barb saying, "You have to go where you find Jesus."

I will miss Barb. She and I helped clean the O.M.P.H church for a few years, where we are parishioners. We'd meet for lunch and visit. Talk pets and life. She Loved the Lord and her Faith. I loved her beautiful hats she wore to Church. She was a friend. It was always nice to talk to her. Miss you Barb. Sympathy & Prayers.

I will always love my 2nd mom. My Aunt Barb was such a loving and caring person to me my entire life. She was a tough customer when my mouth and actions deserved her wrath but we all knew she was always there for all of us kids. I know i will miss her. Love you Aunt. See you on the other side.
