I work at the Dairy Queen, and waited on Barb almost everyday. I will miss her. Please accept my sympathy. Blessings.

I knew Barb from years ago in Assumption and then more recently Nokomis, where she always had a smile for me. Heaven is a happier place now I am sure!

My grandma, Sue Tokoly, grew up in the house across the street from Barb's --they were dear friends. I first met Barb back in 1995 on my first hunting trip with my dad, uncle, and grandma. I have several fond memories of going shopping, playing BINGO, and staying up late and talking about life...

My father (Al Tokoly), uncle (Mike Tokoly), and husband (Rob Rothermel) were saddened to learn upon their journey down to Nokomis today for their annual pheasant hunting trip -of Barb's passing. Her and Rodell's hospitality cannot be beat. Lot's of happy memories... I know Barb and my grandma are somewhere up in Heaven playing BINGO. XXOO
