Merna & Sharon of Minnesota Linda of Wisconsin and her Spiritual sisters Katie and Regina of Arizona. Barbara was a faithful Jehovah’s Witness She served giving alongside her congregation. Barbara spent decades dedicating her love of life to the medically needy. She had a magic about her when it came to impacting the lives of the elderly. Her patients described her as a Ray of Sunshine entering the room on a cloudy day. She had a wild and carefree personality. She enjoyed riding on the back of Harley-Davidson’s. With her Best friend Ken. From drop tops to Caddies Jumping out of airplanes in her 50s. From binged out canes to dyed blue hair. Barbie preferred to push wheelchair rather than sit in it. She had an impeccable sense of style from classy to flashy as needed. You could see her in a crowd with her vibrant hair and gemstone in-crested cane Rocken a pair of Dr. Martens boots. Skywalker will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her
“May the luck of the Irish
Lead to happiest heights
And the highway you travel
Be lined with green lights.
Wherever you go and whatever you do,
May the luck of the Irish be there with you."
In loving memory
of Barbara Behrent
