Barbara Jean Dennis was born in Cleveland, Ohio. She came to California in 1942, and filled her childhood with adventurous times with her five siblings, before settling in Petaluma.
During her Junior year at Petaluma High, she met the love of her life, Ronald Dennis in an English class. Their love for the arts followed them throughout their lives, as they spent time exploring California and beyond. Whether in Monterey, Bodega or Burney Falls, Barbara would find a spot in the tall grass or along the rocks writing short stories and poems while Ron took photos. She and her loving husband were inseparable enjoying the journey of life together and her greatest joys came from spending time with family and friends. Together they built a family business that has spanned 56 years.
Barbara is survived by her husband of 62 years, three daughters Laurie, Debbie (Greg), Theresa, six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren along with an extensive family and large community of loved ones at her church.
Barbara will be remembered for her kindness, generosity, sense of wonder and her notorious capacity to find out the life stories of strangers. Barbara will be deeply missed but forever celebrated.
A Memorial Mass will be held at St. James Catholic Church of Petaluma, 125 Sonoma Mountain Parkway, Saturday, December 8th 2018 at 1:30 pm. A Reception will follow at St. John’s Anglican Church, 532 South McDowell Blvd, Petaluma, California.
The family welcomes donations honoring the incredible services provided by Hospice of Petaluma, 416 Payran St., Petaluma, CA 94952.
