Barbara was a Bolt of Lightning who lit up our world with a genuine smile, loving heart, generous attitude and beautiful Design for us to enjoy. She loved her Children and Grandchildren with all her heart and had room for me in her heart. She was self-driven to reach for goals only she believed in and sacrificed a great deal to make them happen. Caring for a family, working full time doing what ever she had to, and getting a Degree in Interior Design from Colorado Institute of Art. She was a gifted Artist who displayed her talent by doing Interior Design of homes. She rose to the top of her industry with a Company she started from scratch and turned it into a Multi Million Dollar business supporting and guiding many Designers along the way. She won multiple awards Regionally and Nationally and was recognized as one of the Industries most talented Designers.
Her true love was her Grandchildren. She adored them with all her heart. Losing her first Grandchild to a tragic accident, shattered her world, she was never the same after Christopher’s passing. Never the less she pulled up her boot straps and did her best to go on with life, loving three more Grandchildren on my side of the family. She had no energy left for her business as the loss robbed her of any ambition to deal with going on, she sold her business as her health started to fail.
She loved travel and visited Europe, Africa, the Caribbean, most of North America and Central America. She turned her homes into Jewel boxes, buying homes that needed total repair, she plunged forward with no fear and Made it Happen. Her homes were stunning, reflecting her artistic talent throughout.
The happiest days of her life were probably, the birth of her two children, Christopher and Holly, followed by the birth of her Grandchildren. She loved sitting and holding her grandchildren in her lap, couldn’t get enough, as she cooed and cuddled them reading a story or just whispering to them as they slept in her arms.
Our world became a smaller less bright place as we lost Barbara to a cruel disease. I will miss her deeply as all of us will. Rest in God’s arms Barbara, hold Christopher close, we’ll see you soon.
