Grandchildren who she loved dearly, Arianna Megivern, Nick Pompa, Alex Pompa, Logan Mills & Lucas Mills. \n\nBarbara graduated from Ithaca High School and went on to work after graduating. Throughout the years Barbara enjoyed watching her favorite TV shows, gardening, reading, puzzles, and anything crafty (she really could make anything look good she put her mind to). She was also known for her quick wit, and her kind and compassionate spirit. There was nothing more in this world that she loved than her family. She was always extremely proud of her daughters through all phases of life, as well as her grandchildren. She will be deeply missed by those who knew her.
