They enjoyed 70 years of marriage together and traveled extensively around the world.
Barbara taught Social Sciences and Physical Education at Kimball High School before traveling throughout the mid-western US with Charlie, who was employed as a geophysicist with Magnolia Petroleum which later merged into Mobil Oil Company. After her teaching career, she was employed by the US Selective Service System in Denver, CO. She dedicated much of her life to caring for her husband and twin daughters and will be deeply missed by her surviving husband, Charlie, daughters Karen Caskey and Sandra Dess, her sons-in-law, Dr. Patrick Caskey and David Dess and her five grandchildren, Colin Caskey (Amy Holden), Laurel Caskey and Brendan Caskey, Brian Dess (Maggie Halterman) and Emily Dess Roopkumar (Samson).
