Barbara J Nussbaum

September 18, 1932 - June 19, 2019

Barbara J. Nussbaum, 86, passed away peacefully on June 19, 2019, in North Aurora surrounded by family. She was born on September 18, 1932 to Yale and Alta (nee Quarterman) Shepherd in Platteville, WI.

Barbara was a graduate of East Aurora High School. She worked nearly twenty years in accounting at McMaster-Carr until her retirement. Her excellent quilting skills gave her great joy, eventually leading to her opening a quilting business in her retirement. It certainly was a sight watching her operate an industrial sized quilting machine.  Barbara was dedicated to her family, especially to her children and grandchildren. She was very strong and modest in her faith.

She leaves behind six children; Linda (Jeff) Byrum, Steve Kluber, Richard Kluber, Ronald (Tara) Kluber, John (Shawn) Kluber, and Michael (Renee) Kluber. In addition, she leaves seventeen grandchildren, eight great grandchildren, several nieces and nephews, and a sister-in-law Verdel Shepherd.

She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband Victor Nussbaum, a brother Yale Shepherd, and two sisters Norma and Shirley Keller.
