Barb helped me get through chemo and told me what to expect from it. She recommended her oncologist to me. I could not have gotten through it without her. She was a great support.

I was very upset to hear of Barb's passing. She was one of the most giving and thoughtful people. Always a smile and a cheerful greeting! Have enjoyed her presence at Willis for more than 20 years and knew her as the utmost expert in her profession. She was always willing to dig in and help anybody and always provided the most sincere value in her advice. She will be dearly missed and never replaced. I wish she could have enjoyed a peaceful and relaxing retirement - richly deserved. Just a change of location...heav en.

Barb was a wonderful lady. She brought great knowledge to Willis and she she did so with flair and good humor. Although we did not work in the same office we communicated via email regularly. I will miss her. My condolences, Jill

I will never forget Barb; she was truly extraordinary individual, always eager to help others. Despite her passing being unexpected, it is comforting to know she is in a better place now. Barb, you will be missed. Love, Maggie.

Barb was truly a one-of-a-kind person. I knew her from our professional interactions. Though I only met Barb in person on one occasion, she was someone that I felt I knew without my having worked in the same office with her. She was smart and had certainly made a name for herself within the company and could be counted on for clarity and expertise (and her ability to cut right through to core issues). I always enjoyed working with Barb, and I will truly miss her. Her passing has left a void that will be felt in many areas of the company beyond her Chicago office.

I'm sure that in her free time and activities with family and non-work friends, she brought the same zest for life that she exhibited at work.

Veronica and Kathy, I send my most sincere condolences.
