    When I think of Barb I think of her competence and her dry sense of humor! We became good friends over the years at MHS. She supported me in every way when I worked in the Theatre Arts Dept. When I would bring my grandson Joe in to visit her, she would always give him a treat from her famous candy jar! Barb literally kept the business end of the school district running smoothly; it was more than a job to her! She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her!! She was a “Star”.

    Barb was such a gift to Madeira. As the treasurer of our school, I always had so many questions for her, and she was always so patient and kind. Her legacy will always live on at Madeira. I am sorry that I will be out of town for her celebration of life.
