Barbara was born on February 22, 1939 in Wichita, Kansas to Emerald and Dorothy (Arnold) Todd. When she was young, Barbara and her family moved all around the southern and western United States.
Barbara had many hobbies including sewing and embroidery. She took great pride in her sewing projects. She also enjoyed taking care of her lawn and flower bed. She would spend hours building up her flowers and making sure her lawn looked amazing. Barbara made sure her house was just as beautiful inside as it was outside. She also made sure there was food on the table every night for her family.
Barbara was a caring individual and made sure her family and friends were taken care of. This special trait guided her into the caregiver occupation. She worked as a nurse’s aide for many years, helping other’s the best she possibly could. Barbara also worked in the homes of patients, helping them with their daily needs. She was a caring woman, who always placed other’s needs in front of her own.
She was a great woman, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She will be missed.
