"Barb" has served as part-time secretary since 1999 when she moved to Roanoke to be near a son and grandchildren. When not at church, she can often be found riding her bicycle, in the kitchen baking, or at the Roanoke Senior Center leading an exercise class. She enjoys expressing her faith through writing. Her first book describes the young family’s journey through her husband’s sickness and death. The latest book contains poems challenging senior citizens to make the most of their remaining years in this world as they prepare for the next.
