Barbara Ann Patrick

Barbara Ann Barber Patrick passed away on Aug. 23, 2014 surrounded by her loving family.

She was born on Aug. 4, 1939 in Oakland to Clint and Ann Barber. She grew up and went to school in Mariposa.

Barbara drove school buses for Escalon Unified School

District in San Joaquin County for 25 years, and she enjoyed reminiscing about the children who rode her bus and the many school outings she was able to take them to.

Barbara is survived by her son Fred Finch and daughter-in-law Donna, her daughter Julie Andrews- Helou and her son-in-law Fady, her daughter Charleen Franceschetti and husband Bob, her daughter Dianne Martin and husband Jon, her brother Bob Barber and wife Amy, brother-in-law Randy Andrews, grandchildren Nyla, Elias, Zachary, Spencer, Christopher, Leighton, Taylor, Angela, Megan and Craig. She is also survived by great-grandchildren Geovanna, Nyx, MacKenzie, Perie, Dennis and Haley.

She enjoyed gardening, baking her Christmas cookies and candies, her many pets, and attending her son’s, daughter’s and grandchildren’s sporting events. Her greatest enjoyment, however, was just being Grandma.

Funeral arrangements are being handled by Deegan’s Funeral Chapel in Escalon.

Remembrances can be made to a hospice or to Wags and Whiskers Rescue, a nonprofit animal shelter in Modesto at 613-0958.
