veals that she was born on December 7.
1958, at Holloman Air Force Base, Ala-
orgodo. New Mexico, the second child

i a tour of duty in Western Germany,

school as a member of the college preparatory course and intended to
enter the reaching profession one day.
Barbara. affectionately known to her families and friends as "Babs"
was a human being of inward beauty, a beauty that can truly be said to
be a joy forever.

friendly, quiet. and pleasant. She liked to sing: loved 'Soul music', had
fun at gym class with 'her old sneakers'. was always ready to listen and
had a good sense of humor":

sisters, Judith and Denise, three brothers, Elroy. Jr., Elston and Alston.
