Barbara Smith, 69, of Greeley, Colorado, passed away peacefully on July 30, 2018 with loved ones by her side.
Barbara was born in Canyon City, Colorado to the late Arthur Sr. & Mozelle (Tracey) West on February 4, 1949.
Barbara was known to be a strong & “spunky” woman who always put her family first. She was a strong willed woman that worked in a broad array of careers ranging from a small business owner to landscape foreman to office manager. She and her long term partner, the late Bob Gutheinz enjoyed many hours riding his Harley-Davidson and enjoyed many road-trips with family and friends. She loved spending as much time as she could with her children & grandchildren throughout her life continually supporting her family’s endeavors.
Barbara is survived by her children, Collie (Melissa) Eckels of Greeley, Colorado and Adam (Lauren) Smith of Charleston, South Carolina; grandchildren, Drew Reams, Maddy & Chase Eckels; and a large loving extended family.
She was preceded in death by her parents; siblings, Darlene West, and Arthur West Jr.; and the love of her life, Bob Gutheinz.
A private family Celebration of Life is planned for a later date. In-lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the American Lung Association in her name.
