Our hearts are just broken. On September 17, 2021 the Lord called home Barbara Helen Conklin – Loving wife of the late Robert Conklin. Beloved sister of Kenneth and his wife, MaryAnne; Donald and his wife Linda, Kevin and his wife, Amy. Dear aunt of many nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews. Barbara had two godchildren, Brian and Katelyn. Barbara was born on January 8, 1952 and lived in Closter most of her childhood years. She graduated from Northern Valley Regional High School in Demarest, Class of 1970 and went on to school in New York the following year. She married the love of her life, Bob and they moved to Hackensack and then to Mahwah. They enjoyed going to concerts, baseball and basketball games and visiting their favorite place, the Magic Kingdom. Barbara loved the Opera and the Ballet. She was a master at doing needlepoints, which were exquisite, but most of all, Barbara enjoyed spending time with family, especially during the holidays. She was a talented and dedicated production and graphic designer and worked for many years at Ridgewood Press along with being a creative freelancer. Her clients loved her. Barbara will be missed by all who knew her. It is so hard to say good-bye, but we will cherish the many wonderful, happy memories. Rest easy Barbara...You will be forever in our hearts... God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be so he put his arms around you and whispered, “Come to Me” With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you pass away and although we love you dearly we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best.
