Barb enjoyed being outside whether it was camping and swimming in the lake or working in her flower gardens. She also enjoyed cooking and decorating her home. Barb had a great fashion sense and was always put together. She was very sociable and enjoyed the company of her friends and neighbors.

Also surviving are LaVern’s children, Laurie Meurett (Pete Rynes) of Minneapolis and Dan (Lori) Meurett of Stevens Point; and LaVern’s seven grandchildren.
