Obituary: Barbara Ann Costello

With great sorrow, her children notify friends and family that Barbara Ann Costello passed on in the comfort of her home on the 15th of October, 2013. She was a great woman with a positive spirit: a homemaker, mother, volunteer librarian and bank officer. After raising six children, she attended college, became a registered nurse and hospital administrator.

She had a love for art, from charcoals, pastels and clays to oils and acrylics. She shared her love of art with others as

a plain air art instructor.

She is survived by her loving siblings: Sandy Bradfield and Chris Leibengood (wife, Allegra Leibengood); children: Joseph G. Hollerbach, Kit A. Hardy, Mark D. Hollerbach, Suzanne T. Ammann, Jeanne M. Hollerbach, David A.

Hollerbach (wife, Kathleen Hollerbach); step daughter

Michelle Kingston; and grandchildren: Elizabeth K. Hardy, Megan K. Hollerbach, Summer E. Hollerbach, and Hannah R. Hollerbach.

The Funeral Mass will be held at Saint Joseph’s Catholic Church Friday the 25th of October at 2:00 pm. Interment will follow at Grandview Cemetery in Fort Collins, Colorado.
