Barb was a card carrying diehard Cubs Fan which finally paid off. She was born in Kankakee and was a lifelong resident of Joliet. Barb was the bartender and manager of The Keg restaurant downtown, where she took care of generations of customers for 39 years. She never forgot a face or a name or what they liked to drink. More recently, Barb was employed at Zobel's and the Croatian Cultural Club. She will be missed by all who knew her.
The family would like to thank all of her wonderful friends for their help and support. She loved you all.
