Barbara was a graduate of Stout State University in Menomonie, WI in Early Childhood Education. She taught many years in Randolph County Schools, primarily teaching kindergarten in; Montrose, Whitmer, Valley Head, Pickens and Homestead where she taught most of her career. After retirement, she used her love of flowers working at local florists. She continued her love of knitting baby blankets and booties and dabbled in weaving, bead jewelry, paper marbling, beeswax ornaments/candles, and photography. Journal writing became a daily habit in her grateful journal. She was an avid reader often planning trips to many places within those books, also enjoying inspirational books that gave insight to being a better person. She shared an interest in family history with Terry; enjoying adventures to re-discover the paths of those before her. She enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren, taking them on summer day trips to Historical places and picnics. After moving to Fairmont she was kept busy with the grand girls as she called them. She volunteered with the read aloud program in their classrooms and then continuing to read in the preschooler classrooms, which held a special place in her heart, at Watson and Monogah Elementary. She adopted "older" people in her neighborhood; visiting, baking, and giving flowers to brighten the day. Her love of nature will carry on through what she has taught us and the memories we will cherish. Friends may call from 10:00 am until 12:00 pm Monday, August 2, 2021 at the Tomblyn Funeral Home in Elkins. A funeral service will be at 12:00 pm Monday with Pastor Ann Fretwell officiating.
