Barbara Quick is a senior with a younger, positive attitude about life. For the past two+ years she has been her husband’s caregiver as he becomes more disabled with Parkinson’s and some dementia.
Barbara loves to write and has some books planned with stories from her 61 years of marriage. One book will be about their late son and living with his mental health problems, and another about their son-in-law and his life of survival since early childhood.
She loves dogs and has had a dog in her family since young childhood. Until about 6 months ago, they only had one dog at a time. Now, however, they have two — a 14 1/2 year old yellow Lab mix and a 6 1/2 year old Jack Russell terrier. She has found life to be a little more hectic with two dogs than it was with one, but they love them both dearly.
