  1. My heart is so sad today as I think of all of you in Barbara’s family who will miss her the most. She loved you all so very much. I am sorry for each of you.
    Barbara was my friend and mentor for over twenty years. She always made me feel loved, and I loved her in return.
    Barbara lived a long life, full of fun. She brought joy to the many friends and family who knew her. I will miss her and always remember her enthusiasm and willingness to work hard to reach her goals.
    Barbara leaves us a wonderful legacy in her love of doll collecting.

  2. Barbara was a dear friend to me and my daughter Laura. We enjoyed going to her home many times for our FHDC meetings. Her knowledge of dolls was awesome. Her pleasant attitude made everyone feel welcome. She was loved by everyone in the club. She told us how much she loved coming to the meetings and very seldom missed one. until her illness prevented her from coming. Our sincere condolences go out to her family.

  3. I knew Ms. Gibbs from Golfcrest Country Club, where she always held her doll club meetings. She was one of the most sweetest kindest ladies I’ve ever met in life and from working at “The Club”, she is truly one of God’s angels. Even though it’s been more than 10 years since I’ve seen her I still think of her and always will.
