Just a couple days ago my high school daughter came home looking very somber. She had just learned that her elementary school librarian, Mrs. Williams, had passed. She cried as she talked about Mrs. Williams and all the things she learned from her during her years at Farmington Elementary. Four of my children were read to and taught by Barbara. They all have fond memories of her. I’m so grateful for her positive influence on my children and so many other children in our community. A little piece of her lives on in each of them.

Barbara was a great neighbor for 10 years. She was always kind and loving in every situation and made us feel so welcome when we moved in. Later on, our children got to know her as Mrs. Williams from school. We will forever be grateful for her influence on not only our children but all the kids of Farmington Elementary that loved being with her before and during her fight with cancer. We will miss her deeply until we meet again.

I’ve always felt Barbara’s kindness when I was around her. She made me feel comfortable and cared about; what a great talent! I have had the privilege of working in the school district with Barbara. She was an amazing librarian; friend and mentor. She will be so missed.

In fairy tales, we rejoice when a weaker soul overcomes the might of a stronger adversary through some often miraculous event or power. But reality is generally very different from such a tale and the stronger foe overcomes the weaker hero. However, adding the effects of time, we see a clearer picture as the the weaknesses of character are gradually strengthened and the skirmishes fought through life, the small daily decisions, actions, and words, create a mighty soul. We too often look at the end when we ought to look at the journey. Barbara was such a soul – the end does not define her kindness, compassion, and love; it only accentuates her courage, fortitude, and will, the strengths you as a family saw in your wife and mother and allowed us to share with you. In my moment of extremity, it is her face of concern and devotion I will always remember and we, with you, will miss her presence, but like the tale, she has overcome the malevolent and become a brilliant daughter of God, victorious and pressing forward. We rejoice with you in knowing she waits for us to join her as we pray our tales end so wonderfully. May God bless you and smile upon you during her brief absence.

I've known Barbara since I was a little girl and her daughter Annette and I would play together, and then later as I had children of my own she was always there to help me. She was so kind, offering help to me whenever I needed it, and always being a friend with a listening ear. I can't picture her without seeing a big smile on her face and welcoming arms. Thanks for all you did for me and taught me throughout my life, Barbara. You are loved and will be missed!

Barbara was a beloved neighbor and friend for all the years she and Greg lived across the street from us. I was privileged to be their home teacher when their children were young. Barbara created a beautiful spirit in their home. I cannot think of a kinder, more compassionate person. During my wife's various surgery recoveries, Barbara came and brought food and kept my wife company many times. We will miss her beautiful smile. Our sincere condolences to Greg, Kyler, Annette, Devin, and Lauren for their loss much too soon. And we share our testimony of the power of Christ's resurrection and atonement that binds families eternally.
