Barbara Jean Nabb, 83, of Greeley passed away Friday, September 27th, 2019 at her daughter’s home, surrounded by family. She was born July 23, 1936 in Elwood, Indiana to Carl Jennings Brian and Florence Estle (Babb) Fuller where she grew up on a farm with six brothers and five sisters.
On December 24, 1954 she married Ronald Kenneth Nabb in Elwood and they soon after moved to Colorado. In the summer of 1969, Barbara and her husband Ron moved to the mountains southwest of Denver. She spent many happy years there as a wife and mother to her four girls. She loved cooking for her family as well as playing games, fishing, camping, gardening, and taking care of their menagerie of animals. Barbara worked at Conifer Finer Foods, West Jeff Elementary, May D&F, and at home making beautiful Christmas wreaths each holiday season. Ron and Barbara loved to square dance and round dance with the Merry Mixers over the years. She and her girls attended church each Sunday at Mountain High Chapel in Conifer. Through the years, she enjoyed the addition of her fifteen grandchildren and many great-grandchildren. She was looking forward to the arrival of her 19th great-grandchild.
