I knew Barbara ever since our junior high school days at Adams.  We first met in Mr. Pierson's band class - and as I recall, Barbara played the bassoon, and I painfully recall that I played the French Horn.  Upon getting to know each other in early morning band practice, I also learned that she played the piano, as did I - the only difference was that I played it pretty well.....Barbara played it VERY well.  And although there are many things that come to mind, the thing that I remember most about Barbara - the one thing that really stands out - is that she was always so very friendly to everyone and willing to assume the best in them.  I was very impressed by that quality in Barbara.....she set a good example.  Her contributions to our DHS class speak for themselves - she was always involved in something constructive.  I considered Barbara as a friend ... and she will be sorely missed by this classmate.

I also met Barbara Adams Jr.High. She was always very friendly and very smart. Those photos brought back great memories of great times long past!  Rest in peace Barb.

Just found out about Barb Clarks' passing. A very sad thing to hear about. I remember her very fondly having shared a wall locker next to her in the hall way at the end of the history area not far from Mr. Rials. room. She always had one of the most amazing smiles I ever experienced from someone and she could brighten everyones day! My heart goes out, to those who will miss her, myself included that her spirit will always be with the Class of '71.
