Barb was a real estate agent for 32 years until she retired in 2013 from Lamers Realty in Kimberly. Prior to becoming a real estate broker, she worked at various companies throughout the Valley. Barb was a very active volunteer at St. Paul Parish, Combined Locks. She was president of the Christian services for almost 10 years, served twice on the parish council, she was a lecturer and communion distributor, chairman of the fall festival for 8+ years and got all of the workers for the annual fish fries. Barb also recruited all the sponsors for the golf outing and helped organize the event for many years. In recent years, she was a driver for the county meals program.
Volunteering for church and community was her way of life. Barb’s catholic faith was so very important to her and she felt an obligation to give back to God for all the blessings he bestowed upon her and her family.
