Aging Well – Barbara G.

Aging Well – Barbara G.

Barbara G.

Barbara, one of my students, passed away a few weeks ago after a brief illness at age 88. I only knew her from exercise classes and as a gifted painter.  But others told me about the rest of her amazing life.

Barbara was a veteran of WWII having served as a Sergeant in the US Marine Corps in their MAPS Division.

She was Chief technical illustrator for the Marine Technology Section of a major consulting company where among other projects she was involved in project TRIDENT for the U.S. Navy where she was responsible for all illustrations for technological reports which included antisubmarine warfare, sonar technology, and oceanography. She was also involved with illustrations for the Lunar drill used during the Apollo moon landing.
