My notes from the Altar Rosary Society of St. Peter's are filled with the name of Barb Trombley and her work as a volunteer with our organization. A leader of the rosary before meetings and a vocal participant during them. Barb never failed to speak her mind! She was also a person who was first to sign up for a breakfast or Christmas dinner or bring and participate in the many fundraisers that have kept the society operating for many years. Barb also shared info. about her gardening expertise and sometimes a receipe that was a favorite. I know all the ladies will agree that her love of God and others was unquestionably great and that we were the fortunate benefactors of her kindness ...throughout her life.Read more
