She lived in Texas as a florist.She lived in Framingham, Massachusetts area and worked at a wig company. Barbara & Russell built homes in Florida for a number of years together. Barbara and Russ took a break from home building to run a restaurant in Millinocket, Maine for a number of years before moving back to different areas of Florida to resume building new homes and selling them (which involved many, many moves build a spec, build a home move in, sell and start over).

Barbara is remembered fondly by surviving family and friends as a person who was always eager to help anyone who needed help in anyway possible. Family, friends, and even took in a cat in need of a home (Gracie) are just a few of the people Barbara helped.Barbara was a hard worker all of her life not afraid to jump in and do anything that needed to be done!

Barbara My Friend
I met my friend 15 yrs ago, we had both lost our husbands a few months apart. She was their for me and I for her. Together for formed a beautiful friendship that i will forever hold close to my heart. Barbara loved people, she was so giving of herself, anyone needed something she went running to help. i remember all the good times we shared like, swimming in the pool at 5pm each night, bike rides around the park and just sharing stories of each others life and family. I miss her each day but so greatful we got to met.
Love Doris Grier
When I think of Barbara I think of amazing, caring, kind and giving. Truly someone so special. For sure Heaven did get another Angel the day she left us. Spread those wings Barbara and remember we love you!
Love Lori Grier

Barbara will be remembered with a smile on her face, her pressed and creased jeans with the white shirt. Hair always done very nicely, her earrings, blue fingers, which we always compared. Nothing but the fondest of memories of Barb.

I will miss everything about my Aunt Barb. She was more than an aunt. She was another mother and best friend. I will miss the kayaking down the Weeki Wachee, walks on the beaches and many more of the things she enjoyed doing with me. Most of all I will miss her hugs and kisses. The next time I have my coffee on the beach I know she will still be sitting beside me waiting for the dolphins to swim by. I love you Aunt Barb.

Lots of thoughts,but not the words to express our sorrow of Aunts Barbs passing.Always a highlight seeing her at the family reunion.When Ma and Dad were alive,hearing from them of her visits to them.Our paths didn't cross very often,but when they did it was always wonderful.
