Barbara Jean Brower was born in February 1948 in Laramie, Wyoming to “Bucky” and Lois Wamhoff. She passed away unexpectedly in April 2019 at Ivinson Memorial Hospital in Laramie, Wyoming.
Being raised in Laramie with three siblings, Barbara graduated with the Class of 1966. She was involved with youth organizations and enjoyed early jobs such as babysitting and working at the university. She married George in September 1968. As a couple, George and Barbara lived in Virginia, Utah and settled in Phoenix, Arizona to raise their three children. Barbara returned to school to become a Registered Nurse. She worked in a hospital setting but ultimately found her gift in providing home health care. Being with her family near and far brought her tremendous joy. George and Barbara spent the last several years in Anacortes, WA.
