Barb was always the life of the party.  Having thrown her last celebration and checking off the last of her “to do” list, there was nothing left to do but go home.

Barb was a Girl Scout as a child and as an adult, helped troops for twenty plus years.  She was a member of the Ohio Order of Eastern Star, United Methodist Women, Kings Daughters, Rebekah’s, and was active in many church activities throughout her life as a wife of a veteran and minister.  She was also a member of the First United Methodist Church in Bellefontaine.  Barb also enjoyed playing bridge and was active at the Logan County Friendly Senior Center.

Barb is survived by her daughters, Teri (Doug) Roberts of Hilliard, Ohio, Tami (Rick) Allison of Killbuck, Ohio, Robyn (Bill) Gruber of New Carlisle, Ohio and Kari (Matt) Halko of Brunswick Hills, Ohio; ten grandchildren, Brian Roberts, Brad Roberts, Ben Allison, Abbie Allison, Bethany (Joe) Latham, Billy Gruber, Kellie Gruber, Jerrod Gruber, Ryan Halko, and Adam Halko; two great-grandchildren, Mason Parrett and Marick Latham; a brother-in-law, Bart (Jami) Powell of Albany, Indiana and a niece, Hannah Powell.
