Barbara was a longtime member of St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church where she was actively involved.

She enjoyed music, gardening, and swimming, but what she most enjoyed was spending time with her grandchildren and family gatherings. Barbara and Ernie have resided at Santa Marta retirement community since 2014.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by her son Patrick Peterson (Leslie) of Kansas City, KS; her daughter Anna Friend (Donald) of Fairway, KS; her daughter Amy Stork (Ed) of Shawnee, KS; her brother Stan Smith (Janet) of Shawnee, KS and her eight grandchildren Chrissy, Greg, Matt, Ryan, Julia, Natalie, Nick and Brady.
