Upon her retirement from teaching, she created and operated the ever popular BB Glass Creations, painting and selling glassware at Colorado farmer’s markets and craft fairs. She was an amazing cook and could always be found working in her yard and garden. She also enjoyed entertaining and spending time with family and friends.

Barb is survived by her brother Dale Arnold of Chillicothe MO; son Robert Bichon; son Christopher Bichon (Cheri); and son Brady Bichon (Nicole). Barb has three grandchildren Lexi Bichon, Bodin Bichon, and Griffin Bichon.

Above all Barb adored dogs, especially her pup Bella. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Montrose Animal Shelter, 3383 N Townsend Ave, Montrose, CO 81401, (970) 240-1487. Per her wishes there will not be a service.
