AM, Barbara Visintine LeVeque passed away peacefully at home,
surrounded by her husband and three children. Barbara always said that
all she wants in life is to give back to others, and now that she has
passed, we know she will continue this mission beyond her years -
through her friends, family, and community.
For those who never got the chance to meet Barbara, here are a few
things about her we would like you to know:
Barbara had a superhero-sense for empathy - with an incredible ability
to look into the soul of everyone she met, making them feel seen and
accepted for who they are, as they are.
Barbara was an architect of beauty - whether it was Christmas with her
family, designing the perfect space, or bringing her children into the
world, she had a unique ability to find and create beauty everywhere
Barbara had a contagious energy for life - not just for her life, but
for the life of her children, her husband, and everyone she got the
chance to meet. When you spent time with her, you couldn't help but
feel more whole as a person.
Barbara was a self-proclaimed "ball of love" - Barbara knew
that love takes patience, love takes courage, and love takes the
ability to listen more than you talk. Perhaps, her love is her
greatest legacy. And for those reading, she would encourage you to
waste no time telling the people in your life how much they mean to
After three years of battling Stage IV Ovarian Cancer, Barbara is
survived by her husband of fifteen years, Colin LeVeque, her three
children, Alexis Kirk, William Kirk, and Cameron Kirk, her mother,
Janyce Yeager, her father, John Visintine Jr., her sister, Karen
Visintine, her brothers Martin Visintine and John Visintine III, and
her step-kids Colin LeVeque Jr., Brie LeVeque, Bunny LeVeque, and
