In 1972, Barbara went to work for Neurology Associates, P.A. and retired 24 years later, a fulfilling career working with the many talented neurologists. The patients were always welcomed by her warm smile and compassionate nature. She will be missed by all who knew her. All were welcome in her life with open arms and her generosity knew no limits, always smiling with the patience of a saint.
