“Mrs. Barb always made my day when she came into Cracker Barrel to eat and spend time with us her other Family. Her smile always brought me joy, if I was having a bad day and Mrs. Barb came through the door my day was okay because my Mrs. Barb was here. When she would come in with her Son’s and Mrs. Nancy I still had to get my Big Hug from her. I am really going to miss her Big Smile and her Hugs, it was a joy having her in my Life. Thank you God for Mrs. Barbara and her Family. Love you All and thank you again”

“Barb was like a second mother to me. Barb and her family were a part of my family. She welcomed me every day and always took care of me. She never got upset at me, and I gave her plenty of opportunities. I spent so much time at Barb’s house and countless overnights with Joe, and she only showed me love, attention, and compassion. Love Barb Always, now Rest in Peace.”

“Barb was so many things to so many people. It’s like a super power she had. Her ability to make you feel loved and cared for was amazing. Condolences to the Lovell family and all who loved her. She was an amazing lady.”

“Barb was an absolutely wonderful woman who knew all of us, cared about all of us, and was a great friend to our Dad before he passed. A remarkable legacy she leaves so we will be sure to celebrate and say a prayer.”

“Always loved it when Mom (Ida) and Aunt Barb were together. They would both laugh so hard at something stupid, and then Mom would start snorting and that made them both laugh all the harder. And now they’re back together. I keep listening for Moms snorting and their crazy laughter. Love, Don , Joan, Dana, Shawn, Kenzie and Suzie”
