She was my music teacher at Rural school from Kindergarten through 6th grade (1967-1973) She always made music fun and I looked forward to her weekly class. I especially loved the chorus shows she would put on. I still remember a lot of the words from the Disney show we did. She was very kind, a teacher I remember fondly. Prayers for the family.

I know family and friend's hearts are heavy with the death of your beloved Barbara. I taught school with Barbara and always admired her calmness and sense of humor that she brought to the classsroom. I am reminded of a funny story that happened when Barbara was subbing at McKemy Middle School. She lived close enough to go home for lunch. One day she did, and decided to take a quick nap- but unfortunately overslept-and was late returning to her sub-position. While it was a bit embarrassing for her, she and I had a good chuckle! I know Barbara will be greatly missed. May the memories you made with Barbara help ease your grief.

I saw your grandmother's / mother's obituary in today's paper. I wanted to share that she passed on her love of the piano to me. I took piano lessons from Mrs. Nadeau when I was in grade school. We lived around the corner from her so I would ride my bike to her house each week. I remember, fondly now, though not so much then, memorizing pieces for a contest every year. I find that I can still play some of those pieces by memory today. I gives me a sense of accomplishment. I still play the piano and passed the love of musical performance to my own children!
