Barbara C. Board

Mt. Hood-Parkdale, Ore.

March 24, 1943 - December 22, 2017

Barbara C. Board made her journey to Heaven on Dec. 22, 2017, in Mt. Hood-Parkdale, Ore. Barbara was born on March 24, 1943, in Dalton, Ga.

She was a retired registered nurse (RN) who gave of herself with open hands and open heart; her kindness was beyond comparison. Her light touched all who knew her and she will be remembered.

She was John Wayne’s biggest fan.

Barbara was a devoted mother to Pamela Tyler-Kroon and Jon Johnson, who preceded her in death; beloved mother-in-law to Steven Kroon and Rebecca Johnson; adored grandmother to Will Tyler, Jillian and Jim Becker, John and Blair Johnson, Barbara Johnson and Fiona Wylde, Christopher Johnson and Wolfgang Johnson; great-grandmother to Addie McAllister, Douglas Becker and Alex Johnson; and roommate and dear friend to Scotty Allen. She was preceded in death by her loving husband Rodger Board and her first husband, Cecil F. Johnson.

We shall miss, love and honor her always. We will carry her kind and gentle grace and courage in our very souls for the rest of our lives.

Her love will light our ways.
