My deepest sympathy is extended to you, Jan, and to all of Barb's family. Although I did not know Barb well, I do know that she always had a ready smile, a warm greeting, and a sincere sense of goodness and optimism for everyone she met. Deepest condolences,

It is a sad day. Barb was a dear friend and colleague.
She and I taught together for many years and enjoyed teaching many of the same students. Barb was a wonderful teacher---dedicated, fair, and compassionate. She made a difference in the lives of so many of her students and was much loved and respected by those of us who had the privilege to work with her. We will miss you Barb.
Much love from Julia and Andrew MacRae and family.
