Sorry to hear about Barb's passing. As my sister Jenny said, it has been a long time since we lived in PA. After leaving PA in @1969, we returned to visit several times over the years. During these visits we were able to spend some time with some of our cousins including Barb. What I remember most about Barb is her beautiful smile, energy and joyful demeanor. My deepest condolences to the Sneeringer and Sunbury family. Love and Hugs to all, Ann Marie

My condolences to Barb's entire family. Losing a loved one is never easy but find peace in knowing she is now in Heaven with many of our family. We have not lived in PA for many years now but I have memories of Barb baby sitting us when we were young. She was very gracious in allowing us to tour her home when we were there in 2011. It brought back many memories for myself, Ann and James. Wish we could be there. Sending our thoughts, prayers and love to all of you. Jenny Kaiser Lopez
