Barbara enjoyed cooking the weekly Sunday dinners with her family. She also enjoyed crocheting blankets for babies which were distributed at many baby showers. In recent years she began blanket quilting joining a Clark quilting group. The blankets she made for her family had a theme for that person whether it be sports, a hobby or something from their profession which was personalized for that person. She loved traveling and going to casinos with her sister Joan. After Joan passed she took monthly bus trips to Atlantic City sponsored by the local church. She was an avid follower of all her grandson’s hockey teams and her granddaughter’s softball teams and dance recitals.
