Barbara taught kindergarten for 27 years in Bethany Public Schools. Her B.S. in education and M.Ed. early childhood are from UCO.
She has been a member of Yukon FUMC since 1979. Her daughter grew up attending this church and now her grandchildren are attending.
Barbara’s years of helping with VBS, teaching Sunday school and working with various committees have helped prepare her for her
retirement fun of leading the children’s ministries of this church. She is excited to watch the children grow and mature from the nursery to
adulthood, and to see the changes in the growth of this church.
Barbara is married to Tom, now has 4 daughters, 13 grandchildren, and 1 great granddaughter. She loves reading, gardening, and traveling.
