    What a wonderful life she lived. I especially liked her saying that “ANYTHING WORTH DOING IS WORTH DOING RIGHT” and that’s the way she did it. We’ll
    surely miss our Queen–long live the King!

    Barb was a loving, cheerful person. Always a smile on her face.
    Jim, I can’t begin to imagine how much you will miss her. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I’m going to miss my favorite “Bailey’s Irish Crème” buddy. I could always count on her checking the ads for the lowest price for us to match at Kegs and yes we purchased a six bottle case and we were the happiest two ever. I’ll miss her at the “Y” where we teamed up on Jim so that he would quit giving me a hard time, didn’t work to often but lots of fun. I will miss my buddy and will cherish our relationship with her and Jim forever. Thanks for being a part of my life.

Barbara D. Avgares 83, passed on 3/23/16
Barbara is survived by her husband Jim Avgares, Denver CO.
Son Scott, Hobbs, NM, daughter Terri Avgares, Fort Collins CO, daughter Lori Ballinger, Fort Collins CO and 2 grandchildren, Trista Destefanis, Fort Collins CO and Ben Ballinger, Fort Collins, CO

Barbara and Jim had been married 62 years. During their marriage a goal was to visit every state in the United States and they succeeded. Barbara was a die hard Bronco fan she could be seen watching each and every game. She also fondly earned the name Barbara Crocker. Her homemade chocolate cake with Caramel Frosting was one of her signature dishes. She was an excellent cook and an avid recipe collector. She was always looking to try something new even though navigating her kitchen with a cane or walker was difficult. Her kitchen was her domain and she ruled it. She cooked with passion and instilled that passion into her daughters, always making sure they had the latest new kitchen gadget or a cookbook she thought they would like.

Barbara had difficulty getting around, especially in the last few years but that did not stop her from wanting to go places and be with others. She was always ready for an adventure! Her family will hugely miss her.
