Barbara worked at Keller’s Department Store for many years and was a member of the Moose Lodge. She was a sports fanatic and enjoyed watching her beloved Notre Dame Fighting Irish, IU Hoosiers, and Butler Bulldogs. She would often be seen and heard enthusiastically shouting at the television over games. She also enjoyed reading, watching plays at the Round Barn and spending time with family and friends. Her grandchildren were genuinely her life and her family will truly miss her and her sparky manner.
Per her wishes cremation will take place and there will be no services. Burial will be held at a later date in Pleasant Hill Cemetery in Bourbon, IN.
Memorial contributions may be given to the American Cancer Society or the Wounded Warrior Program.
Elkhart Cremation Services has been entrusted with the arrangements.
