Barb graduated from Walnut Grove High School in 1977. She moved to an apartment in Redwood Falls in 1988 and later roomed with Julie Erickson. Barb became a resident of her REM house in 2007.
She was employed by Service Enterprises, Inc. (SEI), working primarily in the assembly area. Barb was a member of Gloria Dei Lutheran Church. She belonged to People First and the Adult Life Skills program. Barb loved to attend concerts at Jackpot and always appreciated the chance to go places. Her number one favorite thing to do was to go out for treats! Barb’s family was very important to her.
She is survived by her siblings Kathleen (Bruce) Homa of Wausau, Wisconsin, Maureen Style of Hutchinson, David (Lisa) Style of Glencoe, and Sara (Brent) Kuphal of Plymouth; 13 nieces and nephews; 15 great-nieces and –nephews; and many other friends and family.

Blessed be her memory.
