    To Barb’s family, we’ve lost a very special person. She was always a friend to everyone no matter who you were. When we were young, Barb lived with the Mother on South Columbia St. and our family lived on Oak St. almost directly in front of her. One day we were riding bikes, but Barb’s had a low tire. We took it to the gas station on the corner of S. Jackson and Hackett to air up the tire. Neither one of us had any idea how much air to put into it, but we did it any way. Needless to say, it blew! We never tried it again. Barb will truly be missed!

    My deepest thoughts and prayers go out to Barb Mang’s family. I always enjoyed our time together and phone calls. We would laugh and catch up. Never did make it to her lake house she loved so much. Her grandchildren were the blessings she adored. I will miss her smile and friendship. May God bless all of you. Marty Utley
