Barabara Place

May 20, 1937-Jan. 11, 2013

GOSHEN — Barbara Place, 75, passed away Friday at Greencroft Gables due to complications from a broken hip.

Barbara was born May 20, 1937, in Milford, to Noble and Hazel (Adams) Johnson.

On April 20, 1957, she married Alfred Place who preceded her in death March 12, 1973.

Survivors include daughters Pamela (Kevin) Dwyer of Milford, Lisa (Pat) Hare of Goshen; grandson, Justin Hare of Lebanon, N.H.; special family friend, Dr. Daniel Herrick of Lebanon, N.H.; two brothers, Darrel Johnson of Arizona and Kenny (Shirley) Johnson of Syracuse; sister, Carolyn Welker of Milford; and several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Noble and Hazel Johnson.

Barbara was a dedicated homemaker and mother. She loved spending time with her family and was especially happy to reconnect with her sister after a lengthy time apart. In her spare time she loved to read all types of books and watch old Western television shows. Traveling West in her early life was memorable for her and she talked about it often.

There will be two hours of visitation before the 5 p.m. service Monday at Mishler Funeral Home, Milford, with the Rev. Harlan Steffen officiating.

Burial will follow in Milford Cemetery.

Donations in Barbara’s memory may be directed to Goshen Home Care and Hospice, Greencoft Foundation or to the Milford Public Library.

The family would like to extend their sincere appreciation to the following individuals at Greencroft: Kerry, Cindy, Michelle, Diantha, Kristie, Jana, Fannie, Brandi, Kim, Angie, Sarah, Rose, Ruth, Lisa, Nancy, Delia and everyone else who so kindly and patiently worked with our mother. In addition, Rachel, Jennifer and Chris from Goshen Hospice, your kindness will be remembered fondly. You are truly God’s angels here on earth.
