Known affectionately to her family as, “Our Mom”, Grandma Barb, and Gigi. A resident of Orland Park, IL, formally of Frankfort, IL, Crete, IL, South Holland, IL, and Sun Lakes AZ she loved all she knew and was loved by all. A die-hard Cubs fan, she was once found at spring training comparing heart surgery scars with Ron Santo, her favorite Cub. She enjoyed her “Bunco Club” lifelong friends and their times together. Best of all she loved her family and loved to cook. No one ever went hungry when Barbara was in the kitchen. One of her cherished dinners was BBQ ribs with “Grandma Barb’s” sauce.
