Barbara was a founding member of the Westerly Food Co-op in 1974 and was an active participant until we closed it in the early 2000's. She cheerfully put in thousands of hours of volunteer time, primarily as treasurer, the most demanding job. We'll never forget your intelligence and energy. Thank you Barbara.
