She loved this this amazing community and all it had to offer. Her time spent in this community was filled with friends, activities but most importantly joy. She was always ready to make a new friend or take on a new adventure. A person’s story is often told best by looking at the friends they have made along the way. If that is the case, than Barbara has lived a full life, touching so many with her smile and that spontaneous sense of adventure. She will be missed by so many and that is the true testament to the life she lived.
Her life will be celebrated with a gathering of friends and family. In lieu of flowers, the family ask that donations be sent to The Villages Hospital Auxiliary Foundation in recognition of the caring treatment she received from the hospital.
