Dumire family: Please accept my deepest sympathy to hear of Barbara’s passing. A beautiful, caring, talented person. I was a JCP associate (I was in children’s department)and made it a point to say hello to Barbara and the ladies in alterations department just about every morning before the store opened. One morning I went to see Barbara to borrow a needle and thread. As she was gathering my request she noticed I still had my coat on. So I told her as I was bending over to stock a shelf the inseam of my pants ripped. Next thing I knew she gave me a robe to put on and she had my pants on her sewing machine patching them up! She also came to the rescue (came to my house) to alter my daughter’s wedding dress. I will be keeping Barbara in my thoughts and prayers.
