Dear Family Members,
It has been my joy to know Barbara over these past years. We were on the St. Thomas CARE Team and I often drove her to the meetings. Over the past few months, I have seen her at the nursing home on Fridays. She was always upbeat and interesting to talk with. She didn't say much about herself so I didn't know much about her until I met you last week.
She has done so much good with the Girl Scouts, Faith Formation Classes and more. She is surely in heaven where she can enjoy life fully!
Love and prayers,
Sr. Mary Frederick
