    Barb was my best friend at Jamestown High School. She was so kind and sweet. We spent many hours staying overnight at each other’s houses. We communicated until a couple of years ago when she became ill. I will miss her phone calls and letters and her friendship.

    Dear Cheryl and family –

    Matt and I know Barb’s passing is a great loss of not only a dear sister but a good friend. You’re in our prayers for comfort and peace.
    I will remember Barb as a soft spoken, pleasant, and kind Christian lady, as well as a very talented organist.
    My mom Genevieve admired Barb and her skill as well. Heaven has gained another organist!

    Sincerely,
    Kim (Logue) Smargiasso
