BARBARA GETTYS MEYER came into this world kicking and screaming on May 10, 1942. She left us on October 6, 2021, kicking, screaming, and cursing at the dementia that stole years of happiness and memories. We who knew her know that she is now sitting in her recliner, Pepsi, her favorite Cocker Spaniel sitting in her lap, telephone in hand waiting for QVC’s “Gold Rush” to come on!
Barb is a 1964 graduate of Ursinus College, worked in New York City for Sears as assistant buyer, married Wayne on September 9, 1967, and is the mother of Christopher Glenn born on February 7, 1970. She is also the mother of SCRUB-A-DUDS a full-service laundry and Laundromat in Lafayette, Indiana- talk about tough delivery in 1992!
Both Chris and Wayne survive along with Chris’ wife Chris (aka Pookie) and Samantha Ann (aka Sam). Chris, Pookie, and Sam are successfully caring for her other child, SCRUB-A-DUDS. Paul Gettys, her brother, and his daughter Becky Sheppard said their goodbyes and gave her permission to leave them the day of her passing.
Those who knew her know her accomplishments. Those of you who didn’t know her- believe me when I write- SHE DID GOOD!
Shed a tear but have a smile of joy on your face knowing that Barb is with her Pepsi, without pian, remembering the good times. Remember Barb every day by telling someone “I LOVE YOU!”
