"The Mom" - that's what she let me call her for many years :) We often talked about getting together and making a chocolate cake - my favorite. She was just the BEST. I hope that she knows how much she means to me. Love you Barbara "Bunny".

As my closest childhood friend's mother, I grew up around this sweet spirited woman.Truly, kind to the core, always greeting everyone with a smile and a hug. Always wanted to feed you, or get something for you.Bunny was a very suitable nickname as she was a gentle and kind as my favorite animal! You leave behind a memory of grace and kindness. Enjoy the reality of Heaven!

I had the privilege of working at Egyptian Pharmacy with this beautiful a high school student in the early 90's I was mesmerized by the number of people that would come in to the store just to see Bunny. I remember thinking, "i hope people like me that way when i am "established"'. She will be greatly missed......I was fortunate to see her in the parking lot of Ralphs grocery store a few years back and I got a great hug. RIP lil lady. Condolences to the family too, Love, Tiffany Edmiston

I will miss her terribley as she was my Aunt but being only 4 yrs apart she was more like a big sister.. Love you Bunny.

Beyond kind, Barbara was gracious, caring, quick to laugh, and full of wisdom from her life's challenges, especially loosing a beloved child. I always viewed her as the Belmont Shore town greeter who saw the best in people and let them know. She just might be St. Peter's assistant already. Love and sympathy to her family.
