Barbara was a very talented young lady. But what I remember most about her was her sweetness. She truly was friendly and kind to everyone, never involving herself in the gossip or negativity that usually swirls around the high school social circles. She had a kind soul and her death diminishes us here on Earth.
Barbara was very special to me! she was very kind and loving person! She was a person who I look up to as an older sister I wanted to be just like her! but we lost touch as soon as she graduated but she will always have a special place in my heart! an beauitful angel playing her music! when you close your eyes and listen carefuly you can still hear her play those beauitful notes!! I miss her my special friend!
I did not know Barbara very well but I certainly remember what a very sweet & classy gal she was & like Denise Hubbart said she never had anything bad to say about anyone & neither did Denise Hubbard who I had Spanish class with...Barbra I am sure touched many hearts & I hope her loved ones are doing okay with such a heartbreaking loss...
Barbie was so special! Her mom babysat my brother and me in elementary school, and as the "older kid," Barbie was always so nice and patient. I started playing clarinet that year, and she was so great with helping me practice. Later, we had coffee a few times at Cal Poly, talking about the teacher program. She was so loved by her students at Ocean View! Such a loss-- too early...
Barbera always had a kind soul and heart, I will realy miss her
That's too bad. I knew Barbara from Band. Although we were not close friends or anything like that, she stood out among the others because of her talent.
Barbara was an angel with a beautiful heart
I remember Barbara as an extraordinary person. She always had a kind nature. She was smart and thoughtful. We were in the same 6th grade class. There were a few of us that would hang out on the grass at recess and lunch at Shell Beach Elementary. I remember visiting her, meeting her parents and her sister Ingrid. Her family was so kind and positive. Then we went to Judkins Intermediate were some of us created some memories in band (she played the clarinet) and the school dances. When we got to high school, life took over and our friendships changed with the large amount of new students in all our lives. She always completed what she set out to do. My loss was that we did not keep it touch. People that knew her, knew that there was something special about her. It was her kindness, her compassion for life and for people. I remember Barbara having a loving and caring person. I feel blessed to have known her.
I met Barbara in 1974 during our school years at Judkins Intermediate School during choir. I still have pictures of us both together during our choir performances.
Whenever I saw her around AGHS she always made time to talk… she was a dear friend to me. Barbara was a sweet and loving person to all. I will truly miss her.
This woman was my Kindergarten teacher, and I never told her the reason I would use to get upset a lot. It was only because I had a problem with another teacher, but I did not have the language to say it. It was about the time I climbed a slide, and the other teacher who saw me doing it was Louise Dechert. When I did that I have felt ashamed about it, and I never told her. If I had the language to say it she would understand, but she would tell me it was nothing to be ashamed about, and that eventually I got over it and I don't feel ashamed anymore. I just wish I would be able to tell her that.
