Through her teaching career, she would volunteer extra time during the school year and summer to work with students to help them out. After retirement, she was a cancer survivor and committed a great deal of time helping others in a variety of ways through volunteering at multiple charities. She served as an officer on the board of the Hudson-Wise Foundation for God’s Special Children, volunteered at Medina Community Services Center, and the Battered Women’s Shelter.

Barb was a lover of books, nature, gardening, travel, and mostly of her family and friends. She never turned down an opportunity for conversation or a friendly debate. She was an avid Browns, Indians, and Ohio State fan. She enjoyed interacting with her kids during games, discussing their shortcomings or triumphs.

Barb is survived by her beloved sons, John Eshman (Maria) and Craig Eshman (Dawn), cherished granddaughters, Sicilia, Amelia and Bridgette, dearest brother, Gary Stoll (Rita), nieces, Elaine Stoll and Laura Kohl (Matt), and many dear friends.
