The Obituary for a Special Woman........

Barbara P. REDACTED, 88, Beloved Wife, Mother and Friend, passed away on August 14th, 2009 after a short illness.

She was born in Westerly, Rhode Island 1922 and had lived in Tucson since 1949. She is survived by devoted husband Carl “Steve” REDACTED, daughters Gloria and Carla, sons David and Scott with 14 Grandchildren and 21 Great Grandchildren. Barbara was predeceased by her eldest son Michael.

Barbara graduated from College and taught College at age 16. She worked for the Pentagon WWII, Gene Reid Tucson Parks, Mayor Fred Emery and Mike’s Electric. Barbara also taught Red Cross and volunteered for Southern Arizona Rescue / SARA and was a Daughter of the Nile at Sabaar Shrine Temple.

She is greatly missed, but we know, securely and contentedly in the hands of her Lord. An Angel from Earth has moved to Heaven. Goodbye. God Bless. We Love You!

Then one of her favorite songs that we three "Charming Ruffian" Sons of hers would sing to her....usually after we knew we were in trouble, because it always made her smile.

*Now I know the why and how of the Hummingbird below......
Bless you Momma

Those we love can never be
More than a thought apart,
For as long as there is memory,
They'll live on in the heart.

You have my deepest sympathy & sincerest condolences,
