My husband and I knew Barbara from Dr. McGinn’s office; she was our hygienist for years. My mother lives at Matulaitis. When we realized who Barbara was, we re-introduced ourselves to her and chatted. After that every time I would see her I would give her a big, toothy grin and say “thank you for my nice teeth”. It made her smile.

She will be missed in the Matulaitis community.

Don and Family, our condolences to you on the loss of a special lady. Mom (Clara) and I have been wondering about Barbara so I decided to search online and came across her obituary. In 2012 we were so pleased to spend some time with her in her home and meet Don. We both adore Barbara’s artwork we have proudly displayed in our homes. Over the years, Barbara’s prompt responses to Mom’s letters always brought a smile to Mom’s face when they were miles apart.

Mr. Gleason , Melodi, Linda & Family. While I did not have the pleasure of knowing your Mom I know some of you. I know that
sometime in our life we all experience the loss of a loved one. She is not in pain now but I pray that the God of all comfort give you the strength to endure and the hope to know that a day will come when death will be no more and you will see her again as God promised in his word the Bible many years ago in Rev. 21:3,4 My deepest sympathy to you all.
