|Barbara Sander Randall Klein|
January 16, 1923 - March 16, 2012
Maybe it's hard for some people to understand how you can have a good friend who is older than your parents. (Or, older than my parents would have been if they were still around.) I think when you find someone wonderful like Barbara in your life, well, age just doesn't matter a bit.

Barbara was still teaching the adult Sunday School class in our ward up until last fall. She was sharp as can be, and had a good sense of humor.
Barbara was interested in people and the world around her, and certainly interesting. She decided to go to college after she had her family and earned a degree in education. Her love of books led to her founding a women's book club back in the 1950s. Belles Lettres is still going strong today.
Barbara was an avid, and excellent, quilter. Her children decided it was fitting to put some of these wonderful quilts on display for the funeral.
|Barbara's Priceless Quilts were on display|
|These are just a small sample of all the quilts she pieced in her day|
|They were all beautifully done|
|Family and Friends after the service|

Barbara loved good music. In fact, when she decided, at age 88, to pen a little play for the Relief Society birthday celebration, she asked Ginny to supply the music for the event. The two were good friends.

I tried catching some photos of people milling about, and they didn't turn out as nicely as I had hoped. I hope everyone forgives me. I know it was a stressful event for the family.
Barbara had 4 children, 17 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren. She is survived by her 2nd husband, Bill, who is ill and could not attend the service.
