Memories Timeline


  1. I’m so sorry to hear about your loss, Barbara was a good person. Thoughts and prayers to your family.

  2. I am so very sorry for the loss of this wonderful woman. She was one of my favorite teachers at Seton High School. Even though it has been many years, I learned so much from her …things that I use to this day. Her encouragement and love for her students made her an outstanding teacher. Your family is in my prayers!

  3. Bill and Janet Lofgren

    John and Family, You have been in our thoughts and prayers since we got the unexpected news of Barbara’s death. It hardly seems possible that such a vibrant, loving woman is no longer with us. We know that having the family together has been comforting to you all. We hope these words from 1 Peter 5: 10 will also help. “And the God of all grace who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.”

    Bill and Janet

  4. John, we are very sorry for your loss, and ours. I’ve know Barb since we were both 17 year old college freshmen. We were roommates all for years of college. I wore her wedding dress at my wedding. We kept in touch all these years. I will miss her dearly and will always remember our years and special times together. I feel your loss, John. We send love and hugs of comfort, to you and your family. We will honor Barbara on Tuesday, January 24th, her 78th birthday.
    Greg and Sally Mann

  5. John, Barb and you were in DewAnn’s and my prayers today and we extend our love and support to you. We have many memories of fun times with the two of you and we admire and celebrate the love the two of you shared for so many years. So many children were blessed by her devotion and gifts as a teacher and you had a wonderful partner. Our love and prayers are with you, Clarence and DewAnn.

  6. John, we are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Barb will surely be missed. We wish you Gods peace and comfort. Dick and Betty Elder

  7. John, aka Stork

    Just want to send my condolence to you and your family. I wish to thank the late 50\’s brother for including me the annual dinners, golf in Canon City, and Christmas dinners. Also, we remember the 2005 reunion and enjoying you two also, the golf dinner at Marv\’s in Loveland and I think a picnic we got to share with you both.
    Thanks so much for allowing Pam and I to get to know you both. Barbara was a wonderful person and everyone will miss her that knew her.

    Pam and Jim Lang

  8. We never had the pleasure to meet Barbara, but we know Traci, Dave and Michael well. Many daughters are made in the spirit of their Mom. We believe that to be true and knowing how special Traci is tells us that Barbara was an exceptional lady. May God richly bless all of you at this time and give you peace and comfort of your memories you hold dear. Words never seem to carry the care and love they are intended, know you are loved by the Spangler’s!

  9. We can’t believe she left us all too soon. Memories of all we’ve shared come flooding in. The millions of Bronco games we went to — including the 2 Super Bowls — the cruises — the annual Sig Ep parties — our family get togethers — our kid’s weddings — our loved one’s funerals — just being together — we will cherish each and every memory. We so loved you, Barbara, and will continue to — you with the big voice but even bigger heart. Until we meet in Heaven, dear friend. Our love goes now to those you left behind. John, we will always be here for you. Much love to you, Traci, Marc and the entire family she loved so much. Ken and Jeni

  10. John, our prayers are with you and the family, I will be having surgery Monday and will be unable to make the services, our thoughts will be with you. Jim & Betty
