Barbara Janis Gough (nee Klosterman), 80, passed away July 23, peacefully after a yearlong illness in her hometown of Barberton. Her family was her pride and joy. She spent countless hours helping entertaining, teaching and loving them. She never said no to a babysitting request, watched and cheered on her children and grandchildren at as many of their events that she could attend.

She is loved and remembered by her husband of nearly 60 years, Thomas Gough; children, Danielle (Michael) Whitcomb and Brett (Julie) Gough; grandchildren, Alex Whitcomb, Gabrielle (Harold) Encarnacion, Andrew Whitcomb and his fiancee, Annie Nataro, Sophie Gough, Gwyneth Whitcomb and Spencer Gough and her beloved great-grandbaby, Jaylen Thomas Encarnacion.  Also remembering her lovingly are her circle of friends, from Oriana House, where she worked for 27 years to her dear “Card Club” friends of over 55 years. Barbara’s funeral service will be Friday, July 29,  at 11 a.m. at the Campfield Hickman Collier Funeral Home, 566 W. Park. Ave., Barberton. Burial to follow at Greenlawn Memorial Park.
