Barbara was the ultimate community volunteer. She would deliver to all new residents of Heyworth a welcome basket with a loaf of homemade bread. She was on the Hey-Days Committee, Heyworth Alumni Assoc. and sang in the Sweet Adeline’s Group for many years. She was Grand Marshall for the Heyworth Christmas Parade in 2008. She was a very active member of the United Methodist Church of Heyworth, singing in the choir and taking part in many programs at the church. Barbara loved the Lord. She would always say, “Today is the day the Lord has made, rejoice and be glad in it.”
