DANBORO & DOYLESTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA - Barbara Ann Greb left this world on December 9, 2015 to join her beloved husband, her recently deceased granddaughter, and her Lord. She was 80 years old.
Barbara was born to Anna (Cooper) and Lester Hendricks and was raised by her aunt and uncle, Hilda (Hendricks) and John Lear in Carversville, PA. She was one of seven children. She graduated from New Hope Solebury School in 1952 and got her RN at Abington Nursing School. It was in nursing school that her roommate and best friend, Louise, introduced Barbara to her brother, Norman Greb. Two years later, Barbara and Norman were married. They celebrated 56 happy years together before his passing last year. They lived in Danboro, PA and had five children, six grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. Barbara loved her family dearly!
Barbara, together with Norman, was a youth group leader at Danboro Reformed Church and a member of Gideons International. She also taught Sunday school and was a Girl Scout leader. In more recent years, she and her husband were members of Main Street Baptist Church in Doylestown and Point Pleasant Baptist in Pt. Pleasant, PA.
