Please join us as we remember and honor Barbara's life and the impact she had on those around her. Barbara had a wonderful sense of life. Her perception of people and events, close by and far away, was evident in her acceptance of everyone around her. Barbara’s friends enjoyed her quick-witted humor and her classy style. Most important to Barbara was her devotion to her family, especially to her late husband Bill. She enjoyed many wonderful trips with her family over the past years.

Survivors: Daughter Dr. Kris Holmberg and her partner Frank, step-grandson Eric and his wife;  Daughter Terri Santos and husband John; grandchildren John IV, Sophia, Evan and Will Santos.

Wherever Barbara lived she enjoyed her friends and a number of activities – mahjong, bocce, reading, water aerobics and travel.  Barbara was very active in Rock Island in the Junior League, VNA and worked tirelessly to support Bill and the Chiropractic industry.   She worked in the fashion industry as a buyer for Ramey’s Womens Boutique shop since 1954 until her retirement in 1989.
