Barbie was a special friend, a very hard worker, full of fun and a very positive thinker. I remember her greeting customers at Millside in a long evening gown and always being so personable to everyone. After work they would sometimes go to King of Prussia in the motor home. She also had a very happy relationship with Bud. We will miss her very much. We send our deepest sympathy to Fritz and family.

Barbie will be truly missed. She was one of the most caring, kind, charismatic, energetic people I have met. We have so many fond memories: New Years Eve at Millside, boating adventures with Bill, Millside picnics, marina parties with "Dr. Heather" and the list goes on. She is in a better place, resting peacefully! My deepest sympathy to all her family and friends!
Jamie Nace and family.

Barbie was a large part of my life as a young mother. We were friends and our children were always together. We had many many good years of fun and laughs at the antics of our kids and great fun as adults working together at Millside Inn. Memories of laughter and tears. Passing P n J sandwiches to Fritz and Kirk as they peeked through the stair railings on a busy Saturday night. Barbie always caring about her children and mine. She was a good friend, a good mother and a hard worker. She will be remembered by many people for a long time. Fritz and family will feel their loss forever and my heart is with them. RIP Barbie
