Barbara was my college roommate for 3 years at UConn. She was a wonderful person and a great friend for many years. Even after I moved to NC several years ago, I knew I could count on Barbara if I needed her, for me especially emotional support. I am saddened by her loss and extend many prayers and much sympathy to Paula and her family. With love and fond memories, Marge "Mudge" Peila

I worked with Barbara at CREC. She was a wonderful person, a good friend and a true "CRECie" who helped many students entrusted to her care and the colleagues with whom she worked since the days of Shanti. I respect her greatly.
Marcia Howard also worked with Barbara and shares my feelings. Marcia still uses the recipe for Eileen's Irish Bread ("The best Irish Bread ever.") which Barbara shared with her. We are saddened by her passing, and send our prayers for you and her cherished nieces and nephews.

I lived next door to Barbara on Burr Street for ten years. She was a wonderful neighbor who became a good friend too. I’m very saddened to learn of her passing, and send my prayers of support to her family and loved ones.
With my deepest sympathy, - Bill Murphy
