Obituary published in Merced Sun Star on August 11,2008

Beloved wife, mother and Friend. Barbara leaves behind her husband of 50 years, Richard, her children Allen, Patty, Linda, Jim, Mary, Mike, John, Charles, Kay, Ron, Rebecca, Tony, Ricky and Bruce. Additionally she leaves 13 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren. Of all her accomplishments, Mom was most proud of having raised a close knit, loving Family. Having been an only child, Mom was determined to make sure her children would always have family to turn to in good times and in bad.

Mission accomplished Mom.

Mom enjoyed holiday gatherings with her Family, trips to the ocean, horseback riding, water skiing and Family trips to Lake Tahoe and Reno. Her friends know that even though she was not the most outgoing person, she was loving, funny, generous, fiercely loyal and could always be relied upon in times of trouble.

Although we miss her terribly, we take great comfort in the knowledge that she is safe and well with our Lord Jesus Christ.

Her sense of duty and honor, her compassion and generosity of spirit and her wry sense of humor live on in our hearts. Truly, our Family could not have been blessed with a more outstanding wife and mother.

In lieu of flowers, the Family requests donations be made to St. Jude's Children's Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105-1942.

A memorial mass will be held on Wednesday, August 13, 2008 at 10AM at St. Anthony Catholic Church, Atwater. Immediately following the service, the Family invites you to join them in a joyful celebration of this remarkable woman's life at Casa Blanca Restaurant, 2811 Shaffer Rd, Atwater 358-7623. Food and beverages will be served. Please join us and bring your happiest memories of Mom with you. Burial will take place on Thursday, August 14, 2008 at 10:30 am at San Joaquin Valley National Cemetery, Gustine, CA.

Arrangements entrusted to Wilson Family Funeral Chapel.
