  1. Sr. Barbara was our 3rd grade teacher at St. James Elementary in Redondo Beach. Last year our 8th class celebrated our 55 th anniversary and spoke by phone with Sr. Barbara. She was so thrilled that we remembered her.

    What a joy Sister Saint Barbara was. She brought laughter several times a day to a crowded classroom with 50 students under her tutelage. She had overseen my education during the 1951-52 school year. I was lucky enough to visit with her this last year and we were able to remind each other of some of the many things that occurred during the early years. Back in those days I can remember her impish grin along with a Twinkie in her eye which seemed as if they were a perminant part of her make up. “Hey batter batter” she would taunt as you would get up to the plate during the games she would organize. Of all my grade school teachers I remember the most.
    There is no need to pray for her as she is already sitting at the right hand side as I know she is in heaven and at one of the games yelling “Hey batter batter.”
    A credit to the order, a loss to the world and a handsome addition inside the Gates.

  3. It is said that people are mainly heart or head. Sister Barbara was definitely heart. We sorely miss them because they hit our emotions. They’re the ones with the wit, the charm, the warmth, the softness, and the words of support. Rest in peace, sweet Sister;we loved you. You sparkled.
