“Barbara was a wonderfully kind and sweet peron. She had four darling kids who great observers. Just as Barbara was somewhat shy and quiet, so were her children. Youlanda, in particular, seemed to watch the whole world around her. Barbara was a wonderful parent and her children always had her full attention. She was kind to everyone and was a pleasure to spend time with on different jobs in Jonestown. ” - Laura Johnston Kohl
