There is much to remember about Barbara Scheelje. After being raised in Ridgewood, NJ, Barbara, as an academic, attended Colby Junior College becoming a medical technologist. Barbara left an indelible mark on the Abington Memorial Hospital, currently named Abington Hospital – Jefferson Health through stewardship and a career that spanned 50 years. Barbara traveled, seeing much of what the world had to offer. Barbara placed great importance on family, with which she maintaining close relationships and often joyfully recounted to friends stories about celebrations and holidays. Last, Barbara had many, many, friends including the canine friends that she and Jake raised, showed and showered with endless affection at her home. With Barbara’s closest friends, she demonstrated through word and deed that “familial ties” could extend beyond those who were actually relatives.

Many lives were touched by Barbara. Those of us who were fortunate enough to know her will remember her profound sense of welcome as well as her insights, wisdom and advice. Barbara has gone on now and is at peace being freed from earthly cares. She will live on, however, by us embracing one another as she embraced us.

My deepest condolences to her family.
