Barb grew up in Chicago, Illinois where she performed as the lead in both elementary and high school theatre productions. She loved both singing and acting and it was suggested she should make it her career. Barb relocated to Kenosha, WI at the age of 26 to take a position as Property Manager of the Shagbark Apartments. After more than 20 years she left to take a position at Bear Property Management as Director of Property Management. She was there 17 years until she retired in 2015. As owner of 10 rental properties Barb took pride at being the best landlord she could be both on the job and in her own personal life.
Barb had 3 children and enjoyed spending time with them and her 7 grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren and her furry companion, Rocky. Barb enjoyed traveling, especially her multiple trips to Aruba and Hawaii. She also cherished spending time with her friends and celebrating many frequent joyous occasions together.
Barb will be remembered for her strong work ethic, generosity, being a “rainmaker” and for her love of Disney World, which she visited 10 times. As a Real Estate Broker, Barb designed and built 2 houses and a 4-unit apartment building. As a Property Manager, Barb served as President of the Kenosha Landlord Association and on its Board of Directors. Barb took great pride in her many years of experience in property management and was well respected by her peers. After retirement Barb became closer to her faith and attended and completed RCIA classes and was thankful to make her sacraments at St. Anne’s Catholic church in 2017.
Barb will always be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Barb has left many behind to cherish her memory.
