We are so sorry to learn of Barbara's passing, even though we know it means she is no longer suffering. My (Marilyn's) first memories of Barbara are of working together as our kids were in 4-H years ago. She was also using some of her cooking skills at the hospital during the time my dad, Ted Lungren, was a part of the "Southenders." She always had a friendly smile.

May memories bring each of you comfort.


Blessings,

Marilyn

I just heard about this and my heart is broken. Barbara took really great care of me when I worked at Caldwell hospital. She was a great cook and a great listener. I will never forget her. Prayers to you all that God will give you strength to get through this time and that your memories will give you comfort.

Dear Ben, Janet, Cheryl, Pam, Missy and Benny,

My thoughts and prayers go out to each and every one of you. So Sorry to hear about your great loss. I remember one of my visits, being at Stella and Charley's house and swinging on a tire swing with all the kids while your mom, Barbara fixed us a super lunch. My grandmother, Ruby Ziegler was helping her and it was just a super day. Benny must of been around the age of 6 and it seems like we pestered some cats and dogs that day too. Just know, I'm thinking of you all and again, so sorry for your loss.
