Our dear and loving Barbara has left us. She leaves Paul, her devoted husband of 68 years. Three children, Jim, Christopher and Connie; six grandchildren; her sister Nancy; and nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her sister, Janet.
Barbara was born in the Dalles, Ore., the daughter of Jim and Jessie Duthie and graduated from the Dalles High School in 1946. She had a lovely soprano voice and sang at many events. She moved to Portland, to live with her sister Janet and went to Beauty School. It was in Portland that she met Paul, the love of her life. Over the years, they lived in many places, Alameda, a farm near Roseburg, Wilsonville, Canby, opened a store and motel in Rockaway and eventually moved to King City.
She was active in the activities in the community such as ceramics, politics, swimming, dinner clubs and card clubs.
She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She loved to knit, crochet and sew. She was loving and caring, always there with support.
At her request, there was no funeral, please just remember a life well lived and well loved.
