Barbara A. Gignac, age 82, passed away quietly on Feb. 1 of this year due to chronic health issues. The last couple years have been a roller coaster of hospitals and rehab and simply, mom was tired of the ride. She and husband Bob, enjoyed over 25 years of traveling the USA in their RV, seeing many wonderful sights and making friends along the way. Mom spent her time doing crossword puzzles, sudoku, reading and occasionally visiting the casinos in Laughlin and Tucson. She grew up in Calumet, MI, raised a family in Berkley, MI, moved to Benson, AZ as home base while they traveled, and finally settled in Sierra Vista, AZ to bask in the warm weather.
Barbara is preceded in death by her parents, Frances and Joseph Srebernak. She is survived by Robert, her husband of 62 years, her sister Marilyn ‘Penny’ (Dan) Zdeb, brother William (Kay) Srebernak, and children: James (Lisa) Gignac, Timothy (Patti) Gignac, Joy L Gignac, and Lori Fisher. She has 11 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren.
