Barbara was a spirited lady who was always involved with family, friends and community. Her caring nature was felt by everyone that had a place in her heart. She needed a big heart and she definitely had one. Barb loved being with friends whether playing cards, dominoes, organizing parties, dining in the cafeteria, or having cocktails on the patio. Grama Shu was a connoisseur of vodka who stayed loyal to her favorite brand - Smirnoff to the end. Barbara is survived by her two sons, Charles Shufeldt of Atlanta and Mark Shufeldt of Phoenix.

This large family was showered with love and attention by Barb's formidable organizational skills. She was our beloved, Queen. Barbara was preceded in death by her oldest daughter, Robyn Martha Parrott and Chuck's wife, Margaret Duval Shufeldt. The family would like to give their heartfelt thanks to the amazing staff at Prestige Assisted Living who treated Barbara like their own mother. She felt their love.
