Barbara was a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, sister and friend. She was loved and known by everyone who crossed her path. She was pre-ceased by her son Richard J. Garland Jr., who passed back in 1982. Barbara had been a waitress for the former Hoffman's Restaurant in Latham, NY for several years, also the former Ada's Diner in Mechanicville, NY and J.M. Fields store in Troy, NY. A longtime fan of the N.Y. Yankees, enjoyed participating in BINGO and Racino Gambling. But above everything she loved, her family ALWAYS came first, from her children, all the way up to her great- grand children. She had so much love in her heart and would do ANYTHING to put others she loved before herself, and that is why she was loved so much. There was not a time where she would miss anything where her family was concered. Weather it be birthday's, anniversaries, Welcoming a new addition to the family, or even school sporting events. You always knew, when looking in the crowd, that you would see her sitting right there cheering for you to win, and it was a great feeling!! - When its all said and done, i dont think anyone could have asked for a better person to have in their life than Barbara.
