I'm so sorry to hear about Barb. We met through a mutual friend and become co-workers. We had a lot of fun and many serious conversations as well. She will be greatly missed.

This is really heartbreaking. Barb was an amazing co-worker and friend. She was so beautiful (inside and out), smart and so caring. I will miss you Barb. Prayers to the Kerley family.

Very sad to hear of Barb's passing. She was a great friend of mine in elementary school. Beautiful and smart I remember of Barb. My sympathies to her family.

I was so sorry to see this. I was married to Alan for a few years and she was a bridesmaid. Barb was a great cook and taught me a few things. I remember my years as a Kerley with extreme affection. Sending love to all.

I will always remember Barb as my first professional female role model. I was a young intern and she was an intelligent, no-nonsense business woman in tech. She was so kind to me and I loved her sense of humor! I pray her family and friends find peace during this difficult time.

Barb was a wonderful friend for nearly 60 years! My love of music began with her as we discovered Carol King, Elton John and Cat Stevens in the '70s and continued throughout our lives. We had many walks and meaningful talks where we ended up at Lake Erie, developing a grand love of lakes and nature.
She was a one-of-a-kind friend that I was fortunate to share my life with. I will miss her greatly but am so honored to have known her.
