Barbara passed away after an extended illness with ALS. She never gave in and never let the disease define her. Barb was committed to all around her living an inspired life they love. She lived this right through her illness. She will be terribly missed by her family, her many friends, co-workers, and colleagues.
Born in Madison, WI to the late Kay and Dick Wissler and raised in Hudson OH, Barb attended Hudson High School and was an award-winning artist growing up. She received a BFA from Ohio Wesleyan University. After college she moved to Dallas and started a 20+ year career with Neopost, based in Hayward, CA. Multiple promotions moved her west to Orange County, CA and then to Danville, CA.
Through her successful business career, active participation with Landmark Education, and involvement at her children’s Greenbrook School, Barb inspired, encouraged and challenged those around her. She produced exceptional results, made it creative and fun, and established lifelong relationships along the way.
Barbara is survived by her husband Greg, her son Hayden, her daughter Kathryn and her brother Randy Wissler of OH; parents-in-law Noreen and Dick Letts of Los Altos, brother-in-law Doug Letts of Washington, sister-in-law Karen (David) Wisser of Danville, CA.
