Barbara loved her job. She refused to retire and wanted to work forever she always said. Everyone that worked with her adored her. If she wasn't working, you could find her at Mohegan Sun playing poker. But her crowning achievement was loving her family. She was fierce in her endless support of her dearest children and grandchildren. No one gave the advice she did. Never judgmental, only the most loving and kind words of encouragement. She showed up to every event, celebration or trying time.  She crossed oceans to hold them. She had the biggest heart of all.

Barbara is survived by her beloved sister, Patricia Brainard of Plantsville, her daughter, Lacey Goodrich and her husband Ed Lutjens of So.
