  6. I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom has touched so many lives. Aunt Barb; not only my aunt, she was my neighbor, my co-worker, my bowling team mate, my yard sale/antiquing pal, my friend. In my early twenties, I’d tag along with my mom and Aunt Barb as they searched for their chosen patterns of Depression Glass. At Aunt Barb’s urging, I joined in, hence, my china cabinet full of cobalt blue Modern Tone. I remember Aunt Barb inviting us all to Thanksgiving, telling us she would set the table with her precious Amber Madrid, but that she would only be serving lukewarm mashed potatoes :). We both worked at the local Sears Catalog store. As kids will do, you girls would start calling your mom once you got home from school, with the various requests and sibling arguments that regularly drive their mothers to distraction. I seem to remember a rule, “if there is no blood, do not call me at work.” A reasonable request:). And, Yes, we were bowling team partners; we bowled on the Friday night ladies league, bowling shirts and all :). Aunt Barb was always the driver because she hated to ride in the car with anyone driving other than herself. Did that ever change? Aunt Barb gave me my bridal shower, much friendship and many happy memories. All in the few short years we were neighbors in Michigan. I feel blessed to have had Aunt Barb’s presence in my life. She has left a legacy of generosity and love. Love and sympathy to you all, her beautiful clan.

  7. Cathy,

  8. Girls, I remember so well when your Dad brought your Mom home to see the family in North Granville. I must have been 11 or 12. I thought having a little baby,Patti, was the greatest thing in the world. Your mom let me care for this adorable little baby. She never treated me as a child. Of course she was only about 6 or 7 years older than me. I have good memories of that time in my life. May she rest in peace eternally. H

  9. My heart is broken. I have lost my absolutely dearest friend. If I take this much, it will be this: love much, treat everyone kindly, an always greet everyone with a hug and a kiss because you don’t know if you will see them again. I was also touched at how much she loved her family, and touched at how everyone from the youngest to the oldest, loved her back.

  10. For many years I thought of Barb as a second mother!! I know that my parents thought that I spent more time at the Pauquette home than my own. She always treated me like one of her girls and her girls made me feel like a sister – being the only girl in my family with four younger brothers – I couldn’t have asked for better “sisters” than them!

    Then after they moved to Virginia Beach from Michigan — I just happened to end up there, too – I married a sailor who was stationed there. Again Barb was there when I needed a mother’s advice in raising my girls while being so far away from my own mother.

    Barb was a loving, caring, strong-willed woman who I will always remember with fondest memories.

    Patti, Cathy, Karen & Audrey — My thoughts and prayers have been and will be with you all in your time of sorrow. Love you all like Sisters!
