In life, Barbara loved her family dearly. She loved to spend time with her kids and grandkids, having them over for dinner like spaghetti and meatballs and a home baked pie. She loved to cook and to can her vegetables. She was a very avid contributor to the Durham fair, and even won numerous ribbons for canning. Barbara lived for bowling. You could always find her at Colony Lanes in Wallingford. In some of her free time, she liked to fish and go tag saling, she was always on the hunt for a hidden antique. Her and Fred Sr. were members of the Russian Orthodox Church and she was also a member of the D.A.R. (daughters of the American Revolution).
