Sophie, Sara and family we know how special your Mom was to each of you as she watched you grow up and contemplated where your lives would take each of you. Barb and your Dad were so proud of you as you grew up from infants to adults and gave them wonderful loving grandchildren. My husband was a teacher and we quickly got acquainted with your Grandmother, Connie, and heard many Bogner stories. One story that I'll never forget was when Barb and "Kohler" were expecting their first child. Prior to Barb's delivery your Grandma Connie bought a lot of blue items but as it turned out she should have bought "pink" items. Barb and your Dad loved you girls to the moon and back. I had the pleasure of working in labor and delivery with Barb. Her quick wit and infectious laughter made life so much better everyone around her. Cherish the memories of both of your parents and when your earthly lives have ended you will be reunited again in God's Heavenly Kingdom

So sorry for your loss! Barb was the most positive person, I ever knew and had such an infectious laugh. She will be missed at CBS for sure. A awesome role model for Christian women.

Although I never met Barb, I did talk to her in 2018 when she called me and offered to help care for my daughter after a tragic accident. She was so nice and willing to do whatever she could to help me by helping my daughter, who knew Barb personally. I remember thinking how wonderful it was to know there were still kind and compassionate people in the world like this dear woman. I am so sorry for her passing and know she will be greatly missed. May God bring you the comfort you need in the days ahead. Sincerely, Marsha Cheesman Galion, Ohio

Our hearts ache at the loss of another incredible mother wife and grandmother. Barb had so many friends and never met a stranger. Her infectious laugh will never be forgotten, along with the words hey “Kohler” come here. Bill, one of my best friends, 49 years a mentor in service for 28 years. I still remember the day he came over to our house and told us Barb is pregnant with then Sara. We’re so delighted for them. They were Two of the best parents heaven could send us. I can hear Barb now, hey “Kohler” I’m here where are you?

Mly sincere sympathy for your loss. Of course her passing is a loss to many many people who knew her. she brought sunshine wherever she went and had the perfect personality for a nurse--especially with children.

Barb was one of the best people we have ever known. No one could bless us like she did. I believe she actually saw through the eyes of Jesus. She could brightened your day with her joy and her smile. We love her and will miss her until we meet again. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.

On National Nurse’s Day let me say that Barb was probably the best nurse I work with in my 40 plus years of practicing medicine (worked with Barb at Third Street Family Health Services). She was remarkably caring, compassionate, hard working and loving, If something needed to done for a patient - ask once and you know it was done. I will miss her. My deepest sympathy to her daughters and family. God bless you all. Gregg Gosky - friend and former co-worker
