Barbara Grubb Obituary

She was born May 5, 1945, in Rzeszow, Poland, and was the second daughter born to the union of Waclaw and Stanislawa Pulczynski. While in Poland, she attended a trade school, which enhanced her love for sewing. Barbara immigrated to the United States with her parents in 1965.
