Barbara was an incredible employee at Purdue Calumet. Thanks to Barbara, many things ran smoothly. Whenever I had a question, I knew Barbara would find the answer or send me to the right person. More importantly, she was friendly, pleasant, and caring. I was sad when she retired. I have enjoyed knowing her as a friend these last several years. Her death leaves a large whole in my life and in many peoples' lives. Sincere condolences to her family.

Every time Barb took a walk around the neighborhood and saw us outside, she made sure to stop and visit with us for a while. She was a wonderful person with a wonderful spirit. She did a wonderful job raising her girls on her own for many years. The angels in heaven are rejoicing and she is now on a new journey. Her family now has an angel up above to watch over them. Our condolences to the family; we will miss her.
