I am late in writing you all. I am a Theta and knew Barb from attendance at Theta alum events. I often saw her at basket ball games in years past also. I am sorry she is gone. She was such a lovely woman and so pretty. She was fun to know and such an active and wonderful woman. My condolences to you all. Margery Stell

Dear Bump and family,
I was so very sorry to see in the paper that Barbara had died. I knew her from football and the Lettermen's gatherings for almost 60 years.. She was such a lovely woman - always pleasant and friendly.
With sympathy, prayers, and love, Jean Deasy

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Elliott family. Barb was the GREATEST A.D.'s wife to help keep the coach's wives socialized, throughout all athletic sports! Loved coming to her house; met many friends through those times because of her thoughtfulness. She will be missed very much! God has gained another angel!!
