It is both with sadness and great joy that we announce Barbara Ruth Stahl, 90, passed peacefully from this life into the arms of our Lord on March 31, 2022, surrounded by her family.
Barbara was born July 15, 1931, in Lockport. Known for her deep love, gentle wisdom, compassionate heart, generous spirit, and great wit, she leaves behind her great legacy of faith for all those who knew her.
Barbara – or nanny, as her grandchildren called her – breathed her faith into every aspect of her life, especially when it came to providing scriptural wisdom in her relationships with others. Her one desire being for everyone to know her Lord and Savior intimately like she did, since her born-again experience on Oct. 17, 1971. She had a great love for family, travel, gardening, and Hallmark movies. Her loving arms were always open to all, but notably to children; grandchildren; great-grandchildren; and her puppy, Faith.
She will be missed by all who knew her, especially by her loving husband of 67 years, Richard R. Stahl.
No viewing or services will be held at this time. In lieu of flowers, please give honorarium gifts to Niagara Hospice, Samaritan's Purse, and/or St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Hardison Funeral Home, 3648 Ransomville Road, Ransomville. Visit www.hardisonfuneralhomes.com for online condolences.
