Some of my most past time memories of my mother Barbara. She loved the outdoors. She enjoyed going for long walks, working in her garden and growing beautiful flowers and vegetables.
Barbara was exceptionallly well at sewing, crocheting, knitting, and embroidery. She was also a wonderful cook from making all her meals from scratch. Her family will forever remember her potato rolls. From past holiday meals to her homemade fudge. She was a expert in the kitchen.
Not only did Barbara's family love her but the staff at Tacoma Nursing & Rehab where she was a long time resident of 10 years. Barbara grew close wonderful relationships with her nurses, staff members, and dear friends. One person who stands out who stayed by her side till the end is her beloved Don. A heart of gold, she loved him dearly.
Barbara had a beautiful warm loving heart and a smile to match. She will be dearly missed by all that knew her and she will be forever in our hearts.
She was a much loved mother of Joseph Martinez, John Martinez, and Patricia Dorman.
