It is with great sorrow that we announce the unexpected passing of our wonderful friend and colleague on The Friends' Board, Barbara Stanford, who lit up every room she entered with good humor and her beautiful smile. Barb died peacefully in her sleep, Tuesday, March 20. She excelled in her many roles as Board Member: Vice-President, Membership Chair and Board Development Chair. We will all miss her warm, caring personality, cheerfulness and eagerness to support a community she dearly loved.
