Barbara J. Weary Age 79, passed away on January 20, 2023 at home surrounded by her family in Carlisle, PA. She was born October 11, 1943 in Carlisle, PA daughter of the late Clyde James and Rhuby Hartzell (Vanasdelan).

She and her husband Richard planted flowers and gardened every year together. She enjoyed doing crafts and was proud to have sewn her curtains which she placed in her home.
