Barbara had a love for family, games, and adventure! She was an avid bowler and was a team member on a local bowling league, many years with her mother Frances. Her and her late husband Wayne and in-laws Square danced for years together. She loved hunting trips with family, fishing, and 4-wheeling often. She loved playing games with her family, hosting family get-togethers, going on girls only weekend shopping trips, and winning family awards for her home-made "Schwann's" pies.
Her love for her family was always top priority and her generosity could never be surpassed. She spent the majority of her life devoted to her husband, kids, home, family, and friends. She left this world peacefully surrounded by her children, grandchildren, and other family members at her side.
Barbara was preceded in death by her husband Wayne of over 50 years, her parents Frank and Frances, her mother and father-in-law Luella and Arthur, her brother-in-law Eddy, grandparents, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
A family and friends gathering at the family home will be held at a later date.
