What a wonderful lady Barb was!! I had the pleasure to know her and spend time with her as she and Ron mentored my late husband Mark L. Conley, as he worked with them in scouts. He also adored both of them. They treated our children as their grandchildren and always gave words of wisdom to them. I pray for comfort and strength that only God can give you all.

Barb and Ron were not only part of my life growing up but Ron was my son Steven Butscher’s scout leader. They were amazing people and always welcomed the friends of their children. I’m so sorry for the loss that the family and friends are going through.

I am so sorry for this news and I am praying for all of you kids. Barb was like a big sister to me and a very dear friend who treated me like I was important. (But then again, she treated EVERYONE like that!) This lady was so special and loving and everything you would want in a friend. It is just so sad, and we will miss her terribly, but we must be happy for her since she is now in Paradise with your dad and the Lord. Again, so much sympathy goes out to you and all your dear family.

Dear Showman family….I am so sorry for your loss. Barb was such an amazing woman. She helped me get my first REAL job at Tremper’s. Such great neighbors. I never heard her mad. She always had an open heart for everyone. I am truly saddened by her passing. You all are such a wonderful family. May you find comfort in knowing that she is reunited with Ron. They were a teal picture of love.
Again my deepest sympathy for you all!
Peggy {Michel} Noftz
