Barbara Jane Tacy, who delighted in reading and quilting, passed away
peacefully on Mother's Day, leaving behind a rich tapestry of love and
cherished memories.

Throughout her remarkable life, Barbara was a beacon of patience,
beauty, and unity, bringing together community, family, and friends in
the true spirit of quilting. Like the pieces of a quilt that may seem
disjointed on their own, Barbara's impact on the lives of those around
her created a beautiful and lasting picture that will endure far beyond
her passing.

Barbara's departure on this significant day is fitting, for she was the
mother of her family, forever loved and celebrated on every Mother's
Day. As we gather to toast her memory, her famous pineapple upside-down
cake in hand, we will share knowing it will never be as good as hers.

Surrounded by the voices and embraces of her adoring family, Barbara
found peace in her final moments. She leaves behind her loving
daughters, Susan and Kitty; her devoted son-in-law, Don; her caring
daughter-in-law, Pam; her beloved grandchildren, Lori and husband Rick,
Brian and wife Kristen, Tobin and wife Yuki, Ryan, and Justin and wife
Lindsay; her great-grandchildren, Haley and husband Mark, Tyler and wife
Jacquie, Annora, Kai and Koa; and great great grandson, Rhodes. Her love
and influence will continue to shape the generations that follow.

In her heart, Barbara carried the deep longing to reunite with her
beloved son, Tim, who passed away just a year ago. Their reunion will
resonate throughout the family, filling our hearts with warmth and

During her final days, when asked what she would most desire in the
world, Barbara expressed her heartfelt wish to be reunited with her late
husband, Loyal, whom she held dear for the past 30 years since his
passing. We find comfort in knowing that they are now together, their
souls entwined once more.

Rest peacefully, Mom, Gram, Great-Gram, Great-Great Gram.
