Barbra was loved by so many people who referred to her as Mom or Grandma that we could not name them all. Mom scrapped all she ever had to care for those she loved. When she was not working outside the home she was taking care of children. She cared for her children, the neighbor's children and anyone who needed the help. She loved the laughter and life of having her family and close friends around and in her home. In our house there was always food, always laughter and always family.
Through the years Barbra worshiped in several churches in Grand Rapids and she always served in various capacities in each church. She helped to mentor young single moms and she served on the Mother Board to name a few positions she filled. She was loved she was cherished and she will be greatly missed.
Rest in peace Mom, Grandma and "Friend to Many" with all of our love, from all of your family.
The funeral will take place, Monday, February 10, 2020 at 3:00 pm at Memorial Alternatives, 2432 Fuller Avenue NE, Grand Rapids, MI, 49505. Family will greet friends, 1 hour prior to the service.
