Barbara loved to garden and especially enjoyed shopping. We will remember her most as a loving, caring, and giving person.

She was preceded in death by her husband Dale of 51 years in 2009; son, Duane Childers in 1979; and her parents.

The family would like to express their appreciation to Christian Villa, Renaissance Memory Care, and Good Shepherd Hospice for their devotion and excellent care provide to their mother and grandmother over the past few years.
