Barb was born on January 13th, 1953 in Brooklyn, N.Y., the daughter of the late Robert and Margaret Clarke. She graduated from high school in Dryden N.Y. and lived in N.Y. for many years eventually moving to Florida, where she met and married her husband John. Barb and John have been in Colorado for over 15 years and have been residents of Evergreen, CO since 2009. Barb had the kindest, loving personality and always cared for others before herself. She loved her husband, family, the outdoors, off-roading in her Jeep and living in the mountains. But most of all she loved spending time with her granddaughters who were the light of her world. Barb will be greatly missed.
