Barbara Ann Minor passed away peacefully on May 27, 2015. Barbara was born in South Dakota on July 15, 1949. She was raised in Southern California and graduated Downey High School in 1967. She moved to Siskiyou County in 1972, and built a home in Mt. Shasta in 1976, where she lived until her passing.

Barbara worked for the family business, Holiday Travel, in Mt. Shasta until 1991. She loved the outdoors and became a Certified Arborist in 1996. As an arborist she worked for Davey Resource Group for 15 years. Barbara raised horses on her property and often lent them to Helping Hands, a program for children with disabilities. In retirement, she volunteered as a docent for the Mt. Shasta Sisson Museum.

Barbara is survived by her mother Margaret Nagel, sister Jackie Derwingson and brother in law Richard Derwingson, daughters Tamara Sullivan and Athena Minor Storey, niece Jennifer Derwingson, nephew Aaron Derwingson, and her proudest accomplishment, grandson Mason Storey.

Her daughters will be hosting a Celebration of Life for Barbara on Saturday June 13, 2015 at 2pm at her home.

All friends are welcome to attend. In lieu of flowers the family would request a donation to the Siskiyou Humane Society.
