Barbara Elaine (Henderson) KomeotisAugust 30, 1945 ~ June 19, 2017 (age 71)
How do you measure a life? One way might be by how many lives you have touched, or maybe the memories you leave behind. Surly in 71 years those memories and lives touched and changed for the better are insurmountable. A treasure trove of good times, if not great times. Barbara did exactly that, and because of that will live forever in the hearts and minds of her adoring family.
How do you summarize a life as full as Barbara Komeotis? You can't. She was wife, a mother, a grandmother to 39, a great-grandmother To 21 and a friend to all. To say she will be missed is an understatement.

May of 1963 began a love story for the ages. You see that's when she married the love her life, Joseph Komeotis. The romance spurred her greatest achievement, eight beautiful children; Thomas, Paul, Harold, David, Robert, Joey, Laurie and Cindy Henderson.
