Barbara was a lifelong Lombard resident. She attended Sacred Heart, Benet Academy and Glenbard East High School Class of 1973.
Her true love was taking care of her family. She was an avid artist who recently discovered Pintrest. She lived her life in the fast lane. She enjoyed her time driving her racecar but loved the relationships with the people that she meet along the way. Everyone called her mom.
Barb was a business owner. She cared for employees as if they were her family. She had to step away from the business when she became ill.
In the very end she remained a fighter. She was surrounded by her children at home when she passed.
