George and Dorothy Roberts owned the grocery store on the hill outside of Moorcroft and Barbara worked there when she was growing up. She always talked about how much she enjoyed working with her mother at the store. Her favorite thing to do was to have the family together. Her greatest passion was her children and grandchildren. She was amazing at preparing meals for our large family and anyone else that wanted to eat. She raised not only her own children but helped raise about every other kid in Osage. She was an amazing mother, grandmother and friend. She will be missed by so many of us! But it gives us great pleasure knowing that she is with her Savior, Jesus Christ!!
