Barbara Leigh Oldenburg, 88 – Passed April 16, 2019

Barbara Leigh Oldenburg, 88, of Cabool, Missouri, went to be with the Lord on April 16, 2019 during her stay at Autumn Oaks in Mountain Grove, Missouri.

She was born on July 23, 1930 in Orange County, California.

She graduated from Mark Keppel High School in 1948. At the age of 18, Barbara married the love of her life, Orrin Albert Oldenburg, and they raised two beautiful children, David and Julie Oldenburg. Orrin and Barbara shared 60 wonderful years together.

Barbara loved gourmet cooking, sewing, quilting, reading, music, all her little doggies, but most of all she loved her family.

Left to honor and remember her love are her children, David and Julie, and 18 wonderful grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her father, her mother, and her husband.

The family wishes to extend their gratitude for the love and support from all the wonderful friends and for Hospice Compassus of Mountain Grove for their care for Barbara in her final days. Barbara was dearly loved by all that knew her and will be dearly missed.

The family requests that any memorial contributions be given to Hospice Compassus of Mountain Grove.
