    Barbara was my supervisor when I was at the NORC in 2004. She was such a kind and caring person and had the ability to truly connect with everyone she met. Barbara had such compassion for others and would go out of her way to help someone in need. She was one of the most wonderful people I’ve ever known. Thinking of her friends and family during this time, and sending my heartfelt condolences.

    I shared an office with Barbara for 4 years when I served as the manager of the Toco Hills NORC-her “baby”. During that time I learned that she was a visionary, a seasoned aging professional, and also someone with an adventurous wild side that you would not expect. She was my mentor, someone I confided in, and the person responsible for encouraging me to return to the work I love at JFCS. She had the rare ability to not only see my potential, but she gently pushed me and ultimately taught me to believe in myself and my abilities to serve others confidently. One conversation with her could change the entire trajectory of your professional life! That was her unique superpower that she shared not only with me, but with so many of my colleagues who all find ourselves indebted to her for helping us to find our path and purpose. She will be missed but her legacy lives on in all of us who she inspired to serve.

    I first met Barbara at a Gerontology Conference many years ago. We had met each other by phone since we shared working with senior adults. I worked at the Center for the Visually Impaired with primarily a senior population. As her reputation suggested I found her to be a passionate and devoted practitioner. She was a great mentor who taught those of us who attended her workshops how to engage more effectively with our seniors. My last contact with her was several years ago at another Gerontology Conference after her presentation. She will be greatly missed both personally and professionally. .

    I'm so glad I was able to talk with Barbara several months ago so I could tell her how much she meant to me. Right after I finished graduate school (about 20 years ago), I first connected with Barbara for a telephone informational interview about working in aging services. She was the first professional I met in Atlanta after moving back here and it was because of her that I applied for the Project Manager position at Federation. She was a great person and mentor. I will forever be appreciative for her support and kindness.

    Barbara was my supervisor at JF&CS until her retirement and we remained friends until her death. Barbara was a loving, caring and understanding person with a great sense of humor. Throughout her illnesses a group of us had telephone calls and lunches weekly and Barbara remained witty, involved, interesting and interested. She was a real “trooper “. I will miss her dearly. May she rest in eternal peace.

    I was on the AVIV committee of JF&CS with Barbara who was always on point with her comments and so knowledgeable about us senior citizens. I learned a lot from her and enjoyed working with her. May her memory be a blessing.

  • Dana & Adam Karp

    So sorry to hear about Barbara's passing. I would sometimes sit next to her at services. We would have nice conversations. I really enjoyed her company. We will always remember her. Rest in Peace, Barbara.

  • Janet L Sugarman

    Barbara, I'm so sorry. We hadn't seen each other in a long time. We were good friends and had a common love for older adults. My first boss at the Louis Kahn Home suggested that I phone her to find out her recommendations as she was the former director of the Home. We were close ever since. She helped me through many crises. Rest in peace, Barbara.
