Barbara Anne Forster - July 17, 1953 to May 5, 2019.
Barbara was born in Trenton, NJ. and raised, along with her 5 siblings, in the nearby Township of Hamilton.  As the second oldest she took on many domestic responsibilities from making school lunches to laundry duty. During her college years she stayed at home and it was not unusual for her to hold two jobs. After completing her teaching degree and seeking something different she moved west. She took a teaching position at St. Michaels, Arizona, near Window Rock, teaching on the Navajo Reservation. Over the course of two years she lived in a Navajo community and explored the southwest and U.S. west coast.
She was a loving mother and devoted wife and stayed close to her family. Barbara is predeceased by her father, J. Robert Kinsley and survived by her mother Anne (Dietrich) Kinsley, her husband Dan and children Kelly and Charles and her favorite son-in-law Griffin Hagle. Also surviving are brothers Robert (Brenda), William (Emily), Patrick (Robin) and Tim and sister Susan Dunsmoor, and numerous nieces and nephews.

A memorial celebration will be held at The Harp, 4935 Newport Ave. in Ocean Beach, on Sunday June 9th starting at 2 PM.
