Barbara passed away on Jan. 22, peacefully in her sleep after a long hard fight with COPD and congestive heart failure.
She is survived by her brother, Jim Blackburn, and numerous friends.
Barbara was an educated, “successful woman” in corporate America during the worst of times to be a woman. Most recently, in Pagosa Springs, she owned and operated Blackburn’s Business Bureau, as a public accountant.
Barbara will be missed for her analytical mind, deliciously decadent spirit and overwhelming generosity. She enjoyed music: “jazz her favorite,” great food, hood parties and people in general.
There will be a celebration of life in Pagosa Springs, date and location to be determined.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Four Corners Public Radio KUTE-FM 90.1, Ignacio.
