Beloved wife and mother, she is survived by her husband, Ron Wilson, her daughter, Tiffany Gowler, her sons, Brandon Wilson and Nathan Wilson, her parents, Wilma Love and Robert Love, her brothers, Robert Love and Kevin Love, and her sister, Kimberly Love-Robinson. Barb was also the beloved grandmother of Braelyn, Tatum, Ryan, Elijah, Brooklyn, Hannah, and Remington and the aunt to numerous nieces and nephews. Barb met the love of her life, Ron, at the age of 15 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The two began their beautiful life together as a married couple on June 14, 1980. Barb was deeply devoted to God and who she was in Christ defined every aspect of her life. She loved her family and friends and never ceased to serve others selflessly. Barb was a math teacher at Air Academy High School for nearly 19 years and influencing students brought her great joy. Barb was loved by many and will be deeply missed, but her life and how she influenced each of us will always be remembered.
