Barbara’s husband, Henry Lewis Childers passed away in June 2013. Her daughters, Linda Lee Sperry and Luanne Marie Raimondi predeceased her in 2005 and 2011, respectively, along with her great-granddaughter, Adrianna. Surviving Barbara are her four additional daughters, Cathleen Lois Henderson of Sunset Beach, North Carolina; Teresa Anne Childers of Pennsauken, New Jersey; Nancy Sue Liss (David) of Exeter, Pennsylvania; and Laurie Jean Milliron (Charles) of Rocky Mount, Virginia.

Barbara had a very extensive professional career. She worked for Abbott Laboratories and was a supervisor with Hewlett-Packard. Her real estate career with Jack McAlister’s Century 21 office culminated into several Million Dollar Club recognitions. Barbara’s girls will remember quiet walks, no matter the hour, through winter’s first snowfall, digging for sand crabs deep in the sand, and serving as a great example in the culinary arts. The girls will remember, not so favorably, getting her home perms and pin curls. Her girls and extended family will greatly miss her. The family deeply thanks the staff of Manatawny Manor in Pottstown and AseraCare Hospice of Exton for their dedicated and focused assistance. Services will be held at Campbell-Ennis-Klotzbach Funeral Home, Main Street at Fifth Avenue, Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, on Monday, January 16, 2017. The viewing will be from 10 to 11:00 AM, followed by a short service at 11:00 AM, and immediately followed by her burial at Washington Memorial Chapel Churchyard located in Valley Forge National Historical Park.
