My brother Charles and I were so sorry to hear of Mrs. Barr's passing. As our neighbor on Lynne Haven Drive for many years she was always a kind and friendly neighbor. She personally helped me be a better teacher! We send our deepest sympathy to your entire family.

Barbara was a wonderful, dynamic woman who will surely be missed. I met her when I joined Brandeis National Committee - Baltimore Chapter - about ten years ago and she was so warm, friendly, kind, and really smart. At one time, we had some meetings in her condo and she couldn't have been more welcoming to all. Hopefully, she did not suffer an extended illness. My heartfelt sympathy to the family - keep her in your hearts and she will always be with you....Norma

All three of our sons attended Cedarmere Elementary and had the good fortune to have Mrs. Barr as their principal, mentor and friend..She left an indelible footprint not only on them, but our entire family...She was fair, extremely approachable and her door was always open.. In later years, we enjoyed seeing,
her and her husband at several area restaurants, where she always asked about
our sons. May her memory forever be a blessing

Fred and Family, we are so sorry to hear of the loss of your mom. She was the Head of Baltimore Hebrew Congregation Day School when our children first attended the school. She was warm and loving and a wonderful leader who first introduced our kids to the world of learning. We will always remember the vibrancy and joy she brought to the school, and her kindness to all of the kids. May her memory be a blessing to you and your family.

Barbara and I were close buddies in college. She was my very best friend. We even double dated with our future husbands and my husband and I were at her wedding to Hal. Months ago I found Barbara and we connected again. It was so much fun reliving our young past.
She was always very special and supportive. I will miss her.

Rest in peace my friend.

I met Fred in elementary school and from then through high school, there were many afternoons I spent at the Barr home. Barbara was always very kind and friendly and would always send best regards to my family. I remember her driving me, Fred and friends many places before we got our driver's licenses. My deepest condolences go to the Barr family; may Barbara's memory be a blessing.

Dear Alan, Peg, Fred, Betsy, Nathan, Julie, and Families, What a family you are, and no wonder with a Mom like Barb, and your Dad Hal, at the helm! They set the gold standard for accomplishments that impacted the lives of so many, yet alone raising a wonderful, family along the way. They were both experts in their fields, and warm, welcoming selfless friends, as well. What an honor to know, and loved them both. I will always cherish the famiy dinners we shared with the accompanying storytelling. Don't be a stranger. My heart is with you at this sad, time. xoxo

I grew up as part of the Lynne Acres family and went to Hebbville Elementary with Fred. I remember meeting Mrs. Barr when she was the principal at Cedarmere Elementary. How fortunate we were to have her as Commander-in-Chief!! Mrs. Barr was involved, approachable, kind and nurturing. Her knowledge and expertise was reflected in the wonderful teachers who taught our children. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. May your wonderful memories bring you comfort during these difficult times.

Barbara and Hal were my parents best friends from the day the moved into the Towers. Their many trips, cruises and crabs at our shore are wonderful memories. May her memory be a blessing.

Dear Barr Family,
Barbara hired me to teach second grade at Cedarmere Elementary in 1986. She was not only my "chief" administrator. She became my mentor and my friend. I will always remember her kindness and empathy when my mom was so sick and died. I had an awful car accident leaving school one day, and she came to the hospital to make sure I was okay and not alone. I will never forget her.

Please accept my sincere sympathy on the passing of your mom. You lost a jewel, but I am sure all the memories you have of this wonderful woman will never be forgotten. Hold them close to your heart, they are your treasures for a lifetime.. Words can not describe your mom, she was really very special. Her brilliance, her wisdom, her disposition, her attitude about life and just talking to her made you feel very lucky to be her friend. And a true friend she was to everyone. How proud she was of the three of you and your families and of course her grand and great grand children. And how lucky you all are and how proud you must be to have had her as your mom. Your dad and all of you were her life. May she Rest in Peace and know how very sad all of us are at the "Towers".

I’ve known and loved Barbara Barr for as long as I can remember. Our families were close and she was synonymous with growing up on Lynne Haven Drive. She had a feisty spirit and looked out for everyone. Her family, especially her beloved husband, Hal, were the loves of her life. I know what an esteemed educator/professional she was, as well! She will be greatly missed!
