Barbara Kaye Munn

August 21, 1941 — December 17, 2023

Barbara Munn, 82, of New Lenox, IL, passed away peacefully on December 17, 2023.  She was born August 21, 1941, in Chicago, Illinois to the late Norman and Isabella (nee Mouat) Hunter.


Barb had 8 brothers. As the only girl and the middle child, she learned to be tough at a very young age, a trait she passed on to her children. She and her late husband Bob were married September 11, 1965 and had 5 children. Barb worked as a cashier at Osco for 16 years, and was a faithful member of New Covenant Community Church where she made some lasting relationships and helped with weekly cleaning of the church. She loved dogs and always had dog treats with her to share with neighborhood dogs. She enjoyed family gatherings especially when they would spend hours visiting & playing card games like hand and foot.


She is the loving mother of Matt (Jen Moran) Munn, Jason (Julie) Munn, Jaymi (Phil) Zehms, Josh (Cindy) Munn, and Lyndsey (Christopher Clark) Munn; cherished grandmother of Luke Munn, Cole Munn, Taylor (Daniel) Miller, Jacob Munn, Ashley Munn, Max Munn, Jack Munn, and Grace Munn; great-grandmother of Henrik Miller. She is a dear aunt of numerous nieces and nephews. She is also survived by her brothers Jimmy, Norm and Raymond (Rose Ellen) Hunter.
