    Barbara and I went to high school together and had many happy memories. We kept in touch in later years and even went to a reunion for our 60th reunion. When I saw her last, she was dealing with the cancer and seemed in good spirits. I will miss her for the many memories we shared. RIP Barbara. Joyce

    Barbara was a PEO sister of mine and a very special friend. We enjoyed many lunches together, and I always admired her strength and wisdom. I will dearly miss her in my life. My deepest sympathy to all her family at this loss. Blessings, Sallie

    Barbara was such a wonderful and sweet lady. I had the pleasure of knowing her through both her cousin Marianna Beach and Neice Terry Edwards. We have stayed in touch through the past year and am so sad to see her gone.

    My Deepest Sympathies and Condolences to her family. All of you can be so very proud to call her Mom, Mother and Friend; as she was that, and and more, to everyone she knew.

    May God Bless and know that she is in Peace.

    Our deepest sympathy to Barbara’s family. I met this dear lady at P.E.O. and immediately grew fond of her because of her humor and thoughtfulness. She endured so much during her later years yet, always seemed to take it all in stride. She amazed me with her memory. Once after not seeing her for a few years, I visited her after hip surgery. She immediately inquired about our children by name and current ages! Amazing! I will miss her.

    How sad for us to learn of Connie’s illness and death. You are in our thoughts so often…and especially now. My memories of Connie include the trouble she had with keeping the riding lawn mower running because she was so tiny! I also remember the luscious treats you would bring to work complements of Connie’s baking. She was such a kind, caring soul. May your good memories bring you some peace during this dark time.

  18. TOM SANDVICK on July 14, 2018 at 1:16 pm

    When our family moved to Springfield (1955). The Lundin clan were some of the first people we encountered and it was great. Dinners after church, then onto High School and Connie was a classmate (Class of 63). Always cheerful and full of life. A friend forever. She is now in good hands. Rest in peace good friend. To all the family I know this is a great loss but draw comfort that Connie was a great and loving person and has filled you with great memories,
