I read in the Piqua Daily Call about Barbara's passing. I met her when we both worked for an interior decorator in Piqua, Ohio. She taught me everything I know about sewing window coverings and accessories. She was a fine lady and good friend. Her husband, George, was one of the men who helped build sets for me for Piqua Players. Barbara was kind and soft spoken and I thought a lot of her. Prayers to her family, whom she loved very much.

We so enjoyed knowing Barbara and missed her when she moved to Florida. Our condolences to the family. Dottie Goater, Peg Hance, and Kay Hardman
