Barb also loved to read and had an extensive library.  She was a member of St. Andrew’s Catholic Church and a part of Ride the River for over 10 years.

Wills; grandchildren: Tarrah (Jared) Beard, Selah (Satch) Baldwin, and Elikah (Max Rodriguez) Wills; a great-granddaughter, Finley Rae Kelley; her brother, Lee Concannon, Jr., as well as nieces and nephews.
