Barbara Gail was born on July 7, 1949, in Hibbing, Minnesota. She was adopted as a baby by her future parents, Andrew and Helen Jarosak. She Graduated from North High and soon after started what would be a lifelong career as an Office Support Specialist III for the Minneapolis City Attorneys. She was a hardworking, devoted employee, truly enjoying her work. When Barbara was not working, she spent time with her daughter, Michelle.
As her daughter grew older and moved out of the house, Barbara started spending time with a unique group of ladies that called themselves the “Golden Girls”. This group of women traveled all over making memories to last a lifetime. Barbara liked to spend time with her other friends and family. Crafting is something both her and her daughter enjoyed and the two of them would go to craft sales and craft exhibits.
Barbara was the best mom a person could ever ask for and will be deeply missed by her family and friends.
Barbara passed away at her home on July 28, 2021, at the age of 72. She is preceded in death by her parents and sister, Jackie Miller. She is survived by her daughter, Michelle (Jim) Leet; nieces and nephews, Tim (Jeri) Miller, Terri Diehl, Todd (Sheila) Miller, Scott (Mary) Miller and Misty (Robert) Eckstrom and many other family members and friends.
A memorial service will take place on Saturday, August 21, 2021 at 11:00 AM at the Dare's Funeral Home Chapel, with a visitation taking place one hour prior to the service at the chapel.
