I was so sorry to hear of Aunt Barb's death. She was sometimes like a mother to us, when me and my sister, Pat would spend the night with Shaye, which we did a lot when we were kids. My deepest sympathy to all her remaining family. Mary (Laake) Engel Waxahachie, TX

I was sorry to read of Barbara's death. We go back a lot of years and Barb's mother, Magdalen, was probably my mother's best friend. Barbars's father George would drive my Mom and Magdalen across town to a meat shop where they could buy the best meats. They would also go across the river where they could get yellow oleo. (That is really dating me.) Barb was one year ahead of me at St. Paul's school. Not many families had two sets of twins in Davenport. I only wish she did not have to experience the tragedy of losing her daughter.

Dustin - Sorry I could not make it down to Barb's visitation. I am out of town. To say Barb was a spitfire is an understatement! She made for a colorful neighbor. Its very sad that you lost her so closely after your Mother passed away. Stop by after things calm down some and we can talk. Take care and extend my sympathy to Maggie.

To all of Barbara's family, my deepest sympathy, and especially to Nancy, Dorothy, Jim, and Joe, my deepest sympathy to all of you for the loss of your sister. Your family from the old St. Luke's neighborhood brings back a lot of fond memories for me. John Fennelly and Family
