Barb was a true friend during our years at Hayes School. Always kind and considerate to all. I don’t think I ever heard an unkind word uttered by her about anything or anyone. I have many fond memories of our years together. I am sure the Fremont students she thought are better people because they had her as an educator. She will be missed by many…..may GOd bring peace to her family in this time of loss. May He bring her home to her everlasting place of rest… I am so very sorry to hear of this loss.
I am so saddened by Barb’s passing. We met in junior high school and had maintained contact through the years. She was extremely intelligent, quick witted and a pillar of strength and support to her family. Our phone chats often lasted an hour or more, the last one in December just before Christmas. I know that students in her classes were fortunate to have had her as a teacher.
I’ll miss you my friend….Deb Smith

Mike and Mary, sorry for the loss of your sister, and my cousin. Sending heartfelt condolences, may she RIP. If you need anything, I am here for you.
A very special person and my favorite teacher of all time-hands down! What a wonderful person and amazing teacher who still kept in touch with many of her students like me who loved her! I will miss you Miss Wetzel/Mrs. Schlarb. Thank you for being such a wonderful influence in my life.
Dear family and friends, please accept my deepest condolences. May God’s promises found at Acts 24:15 and Psalms 37:29 bring you comfort during this difficult time.
So sorry to hear about Barb’s passing. I was looking forward to seeing her at the 50th class reunion this fall. I hadn’t seen Barb in quite a while, since I moved out of Fremont, but for years I would see hear on her front porch as I was driving to work. She always had the most genuine smile and kindest eyes. Will miss her.
My sympathy to the family…
My deepest condolences. Mrs schlarb was my favorite teacher!
I was saddened to hear about Mrs. Schlarb.
She was an amazing teacher. She would always read books to us in class. One of my favorite memories is when she read Cheaper By the Dozen. My condolences to her family.
