Memories Timeline


  1. During my later years as a Special Ed Inclusion teacher at Hudson School in Union City, I had the privilege of working with Barbara.
    She was not only an extraordinary teacher, but a great wife, kind loving mother, along with a wonderful friend to all who knew her. I will always cherish my dear colleague, and feel so grateful for the years she was a part of my life.
    May God be with you dear friend, as you rest peacefully in the arms of our Lord. You will always be remembered and remain close to my heart….always, Linda Wieben
