God blessed them with fifty - two years of marriage. Barbara was a long standing member of the Monticello Christian Church of Monticello, Indiana, loved to sing in the church choir and lived a life of Christian service in many quiet and beautiful ways including an incredible card ministry that touched many. Barbara loved her Lord deeply and walked in the obedience of scripture as she led her children and grandchildren. She was an incredible cook and will especially be remembered by her warm zucchini and banana breads fresh from the oven. Family meal time was important as she led and directed by example the art of cooking and serving. She worked over twenty years in the Hancock County Clerks Office. Upon retirement from Eli Lily, Bob and Barbara moved to Monticello, Indiana where they enjoyed the peacefulness of Lake Freeman until Bobs sudden death in 2004.

Together they shared the blessing of Jim’s six children, thirteen grandchilidren, twenty - six great grandchildren and two great great grandchildren. Love and good food was always the center of family gatherings. Barbara will be missed beyond words. We are grateful for Gods love, restoration and healing power. Our God almighty remains sovereign over all...and life is worth the living... "Just Because He Lives"!
