Barbara lived a full and active life. She homesteaded 160 acres in Fairbanks, Alaska, with her husband, Frank and two sons.

Barbara loved to serve. She was a 4-H leader and taught many classes on crafts, soapstone carving, egg decorating, candymaking and sewing. In Albany, she volunteered at schools, with the Literacy Program and the Victim Assistance program. She donated many hours of tax help to the low-income and elderly. She loved people and opened her home to everyone.

Barbara was an active member of the LDS Church, serving a Family History mission in Tremonton.

Barbara is survived by her sons: Lynn R. Colvard and Charles (Linda) Hunt; a daughter, Shelley (Gene) Wilcox; 10 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Barbara lived with Gene and Shelley’s family for eight years. She touched the lives of many.

Special thanks to the loving home care nurses and aides who cared for Barbara at home, and the staff at Bear River Valley Care Center.

The family suggests donations be made to the Perpetual Education Fund or charity of choice.
