    Barb didn’t know a stranger and if you were one, you weren’t for long. She always had open arms and cared so much. I will never forget visiting for hours- always having to grab a bite to eat and a drink from downstairs. She loved her family deeply. She taught me life lessons that no other woman had taught me before. I’m truly thankful and honored to have known barb and got to love her. Sending love and prayers to all her family and friends.

    I met Barb through her children. I taught all four of them at Clinton Central. I always appreciated the support that she gave me and the Clinton Central FFA Program. In later years, I enjoyed visiting with her and “catching up” with her kid whenever I visited the Marsh Bank Branch. She was always very cheerful and upbeat and truly loved her kids. My condolences Terri Jo, Dave, and Brad.

    Lawler families please except my condolences in the loss of your Mother. I’ve known Barb for many years and played cards back in the sixties with her and Tom when times were simpler.
    She was a special lady, alway gentle and kind.
    Prayers to all of you.
