I was just a child on Boston Rd and I remember Barbara well. If I'm correct her Grandmother was Mary. Pauline Peters. She and Margaret Catherine Bernard were sister. .. Many fond memories of that era. My thoughts and prayers are with. you all. May her soule rest in peace. I always remember her as a beautiful person inside and out.
