Barbara and Dick were married for 55 years and had three children, Stephen, Christy, and Stacey. They enjoyed attending all of their school events and were so proud when all three of them earned degrees from the University of Oklahoma.

Barbara loved Jesus and her church. She especially enjoyed going to her church and working in the flower beds. She just recently completed a garden at the church that she named Mary’s Garden. She was always an active participant and served as Parish Council President, Director of Religious Education, Sunday School Teacher, Women’s Sodality President, Lector, Eucharistic Minister, and gardener. She especially enjoyed being the Chairman of the annual Mardi Gras carnival. Barbara was also Treasurer and President of the Southwest Region of Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women.

Barbara enjoyed sewing and was very talented. She would make her children clothing, beautiful Christmas and Easter dresses for her girls, bridesmaid dresses, her grandchildren’s baby bedding, Halloween costumes, memory quilts, and even alter cloths for her church. She also loved to scrapbook and created wonderful albums for her family.

She loved spending time with her family. She especially loved attending her grandchildren’s events, not missing any if she could help it. She also loved to go to the lake with her family and friends to camp out, fish, and ski. Before retirement in 1997, they bought a lot at Soldier Creek on Lake Texoma and created a lake home for their family. If she wasn’t fishing or boating, she would be working in the yard. She loved to be outside and working in her flower beds whether it was at home, the lake, or the church. After her retirement, she was also active in community projects such as the construction of Kidtopia, a new parish hall for the church, and she participated in the Walters Dalia Flower Club. She also kept her three grandchildren that lived in Walters, Kyle, Calli, and Carter, and she enjoyed every minute of it.
