Her dedication and professionalism earned her the respect and admiration of her colleagues and clients alike. After retirement and moving to Florida, Barb came out of retirement to work with children at the Emerald Coast Science Center.
Barbara found respite and joy in her visits to her second home in Destin, Florida, where she embraced the tranquility of the ocean and created cherished memories with her loved ones. Whether it was building sandcastles with her grandchildren or enjoying the sunsets with friends, Barbara’s love of the sea was a constant source of solace and happiness.
