A memorial mass will be held on Saturday, December 12, 2015, at 11:00 AM, at St. Oliver Plunkett Catholic Church, 3200 Brooks Dr, Snellville, GA 30078. Father John Welch will serve as celebrant.  Relatives and friends are welcome at the home of Kelly and Jerry Buck immediately following the service, 1574 Beaver Creek Ln, Snellville, GA 30078.  As Barb was not a formal person, the attire for the mass will be casual. The family request that those attending wear gray, as gray is the color representing the fight against brain cancer.

Psalm 30 "Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes in the morning."

In memory of Barb, we ask that you celebrate every morning He grants you and find the joy in every day.  In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to brain cancer research www.braintumor.org.
