Barbara was born Sept. 30, 1920, in Corvallis, Ore., to Clarence and Hazel Burris. She grew up in North Powder, Ore., where she met her future husband, Howard West. They were married in 1941.

While her husband was serving in World War II, Barbara owned and operated a beauty salon in the town of Hermiston, Ore.

After the war the couple settled in Eastern Oregon where her daughter was born, followed by son William. After a few years in Boise, Idaho, the family moved to Portland, Ore., where a third child, Gregory was born. Howard built them a home in which they lived until his death in 1997. They were active members of the Irvington Ward of the LDS church.

After their retirement, they had many years of travel and fishing together. They loved their motor home, and enjoyed the Northwest, especially the mountains of Baker and Union County.

Howard and Barbara have 10 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren. Barbara is preceded in death by her brother Barton and her husband Howard.
