Barbara was a mentor to many, both in real life and online – her writings on parenting, disabilities, homeschooling, Montessori education and faith were characterized by clarity, compassion and honesty.
She was the mother of 12 children, and a revert, over the past few years, to the Catholic faith.
Elizabeth Foss has related posts and a link to donate to the Curtis family, especially directed to the cause of Maddy Curtis, a talented vocalist who is a student at the Catholic University of America. CUA is, of course, quite expensive, and even with financial aid, the family was having a difficult time paying those expenses and in fact had recently been told that Maddy would not be able to re-enroll for the spring because of it.
Pray for the repose of Barbara’s soul and for her family’s peace.
