The Family of Barbara Ranzal, mourn her passing, after a long illness at home on Friday, August 13, 2021, just 3 days before her 78th birthday. Barbara is survived by her husband of 52 years, Gerry, her son and daughter, Scott & Stacey, their spouses Mary & Marc, and her five grandchildren, Dylan, Abby, Ava, Luke, and Molly.

Barbara was an at-home mom while her children were growing up. After that she returned to school and completed her education as a Registered Nurse. She worked for more than 15 years as the preschool nurse at The Jawonio Foundation, an organization for individuals with developmental disabilities, behavioral health challenges, and chronic medical conditions. She was a very special person to be able to deal with those children.
Barbara and her husband enjoyed travelling. They travelled extensively throughout the world during their marriage. Their children and their families lived on the East Coast (Stacey) and the West Coast (Scott). After their move to Florida, they made sure to take trips almost annually with the entire family.
