Barbara was a servant of people.  It began early in life while she worked at the local drug store during high school and was evident throughout her life.  She was very active in the Howard United Methodist Church where she loved playing the piano and being a part of the choir and while working in different offices in the courthouse and the schools.  Her love of people never changed, and Bob used to joke with her and say he couldn't take her anywhere because no matter where they went or how far away from home they were, she always seemed to know someone there.

Barbara was also very active in the American Legion Auxiliary in Howard for 64 years, serving as treasurer for many of those years.  One of her favorite things to do was play pinochle, and she and Bob enjoyed playing cards with a groups of friends for many years.
