I just wanted to say that Barb was the most caring and loving person I have ever met. My mother and Barb worked together and when my mother was sick she was at Our Lady of Peace and so was Barb they both were sick but ever day Barb made sure to go in and check up on my mother. She would always put a smile on her face. Thank you Barb Rest In Peace

Barb and I attended school together from Kindergarten (St. John's) through high school (Madonna). I always admired her endlessly brave and positive outlook as she faced life's situations. My sympathy to her family.

To the entire Joseph family, I wish to offer my sincere condolences. I had the pleasure to know Barb because of my 5 years working with her at Town Hall. She was the most kind and nicest person that I've ever known. I will miss her and God bless all of you who loved her and took such good care of her.
