I knew Babs since high school, her infectious smile and impish humor are what I remember most about her. One of the most popular girls in her class at Wissahickon High School, she was a beauty.
Our lives drifted apart and reconnected several times through our adulthood as I had helped move Babs and Chip at least twice.
In recent years we connected in gathering photos for a memory of her twin brother Andy who was killed in Vietnam Nam. The last I spent time with Babs in person was at a brunch at my Blue Bell house after Easter services at St. Thomas Church Whitemarsh. We had a lot of fun reminiscing. You will always be in my prayers and in my heart. Rest In Peace dear friend.

To Barbara's children...Andy and Babs were my first friends. They moved to Abington shortly after my family and I did in the late 1940's. I have so many memories of the two of them. We attended Abington Nursery School together and then Highland Elementary School. The Kuhns moved to Ambler when we were in 5th grade, but I still kept in touch with Babs through high school. Attending Andy's funeral service at the Willow Grove Naval Air Station is certainly my saddest memory. Babs was sweet and kind and fun loving. We reconnected as adults and she shared her amazing experience of finding her birth parents. Sadly, we had lost touch over the past couple of decades. I saw that she was residing at Phoebe Richland which is not far from where I live. Wish so much we could have had one last visit. May she rest in peace.
