A great wife, mother, grandmother and friend passed away peacefully Nov 15, 2018 at “Our Lady of Peace” hospice in St. Paul with her husband; Allen and dog; Cody near her side. Preceded in death by her parents; Clarence and Ruth Field and younger brother; Richard Field. Born April 4, 1942 in Litchfield MN and grew up on the family farm near Atwater MN. After graduating from Atwater high school, attended Hamline and St. Cloud College and later received an associate degree from Lakewood Community college in White Bear Lake, MN.

She earlier worked several years at Investors Diversified Services in Minneapolis, Perkins restaurant in Maplewood and recently worked for over 15 years as a realtor at Coldwell Banker Burnet in White Bear Lake.
Barbara loved her grandchildren dearly, was an avid reader, loved her cabin in WI and loved to help people, sew (especially for her grandchildren), knit and do crossword puzzles. She is an “honorary member for life” of “Bundles of Love” charity and gave multiple homemade receiving blankets to them and the Hayward hospital in WI.
