Bump and the Elliott family,

So sorry to hear of the loss of Barbara. She had such a long, productive, wonderful life. Hopefully the thoughts and prayers of your many friends and colleagues will give you strength at this difficult time. We're thinking of all of you!

I met Barb when I was the librarian at Hills Elementary. She was one of our Rocking Readers. She was so kind to the children who were matched with her.

Barb was a lovely, lovely person just brimming with grace! She was a wonderful ambassador for the University of Iowa as a partner to Bump in hosting gatherings of athletic department personnel. She will be missed!!!!! We are in Chicago babysitting and other wise would not miss her services! Sending love, leora and Steve Houghton

Barbara and I served on the Hillcrest board together, many years ago. She was so articulate, wise, and caring in all our interactions. It was my privilege to know her. Such a loss to the community, in addition to her family's loss. My thoughts are with you all.

My favorite memory was at a dinner at Bump and Barb's house in the 1970's. She reminded me then and did all through my adult life as the ideal Mom. I never told her that. I was just happy to have two Moms in my personal memories.

Words can not express our deep sadness on the passing of Barb. Please know we are thinking of the entire Elliott family at this time. We wish we could be with you in person but unfortunately we are not in Iowa City at this time.
