Barb had a passion for crafting of all types, including sewing, refinishing furniture, and any crafty or repair projects she could find. She worked replacing liners in leather jackets for many years. Later in life, she worked at Village Graphics keeping the books. Barb was a resourceful problem solver, which was one of the amazing qualities she passed down to her children.
