Barbara was born in Philadelphia, PA and had resided in Maple Shade, NJ before moving to Sicklerville in 1999. She worked as a telegram operator for Western Union in Moorestown for 18 years. Known as “Flash” to her family and friends, she loved taking pictures and making picture albums and collages. Barbara was a perfectionist who kept things very organized.
