Barb was born in Allentown, PA on her father’s birthday to Ruth and Charles Schlener. She was the loving wife of Roy who predeceased her in 2013. She adored her two daughters, Tami Streib of Fredericksburg, VA and Wendy Chiaravalloti of Acworth, GA. She was known as GranBarb to her 5 grandchildren: Rachel, Zachary, Emily, Matthew, and Molly.
Barb was the big sister to Jeffrey Schlener, Linda Bystrom, Sally Gilbert (predeceased her in 2013), Better Marsteller and Robin Lysek.
Barb retired as an executive at PPL. She grew up and lived in Allentown, PA and then found her happy place in her retirement years in The Villages, FL. She was loved by her many friends. She learned how to play golf and even had a hole in one! Her calendar was full of game nights, luncheons, parties, crafting and ushering at The Sharon Morse Performing Arts Center and The Studio.
Barbara lived life to the fullest. Spending time with family was a priority for her. She said life was an adventure and was always planning the next one. She always loved us more.
