Later she returned to work at Goshen General Hospital in Indiana, and after the family returned to Pennsylvania, at Franklin Hospital and Venango Manor.



Barbara was a devoted wife and mother. She and her husband never parted for the day without exchanging a kiss. She and Lawrence kept a wonderful garden and took the family on vacation adventures including fishing in Wisconsin, horseback riding in Colorado, and canoeing in Minnesota. She enjoyed hiking, biking, and watching the many birds at their backyard feeders. She was a great cook. She and her husband volunteered for Meals-on-Wheels. She played basketball in high school, and loved the Pirates and Steelers. While a resident at the Caring Place, she enjoyed watching the Steelers with her cousin Don Sloan. Barb was an active member of First United Methodist Church in Franklin. She participated in the UMW, Baradelis class, handbell choir, and the quilting group Flying Needles.
