Barbara (Mock) Davis wants you to know that after 63 years, her work here is done. She received an offer November 21, 2021, an offer no one can refuse. For a most important meeting from which she will not be returning. This meeting comes with huge bonuses, a forever reunion with her parents, Chester Mock and Mary (Wissinger) Mock; sister Debbie Mock; brother Chet Mock Jr; uncle Mike McElhose; aunt Ester McElhose; cousins, Carol Adams, Barbara Jean Tedesco, Christine “Possie” Adams ;father-in-law George Cressley; mother-in-law Elizabeth Davis; brothers-in-law Blair Treese, Gary Kerley; sister-in-law Francis Sinclair; nephews Mike Fennel, Kenny Wirick; and friends she has not seen in a long time. We are sure they are all shouting with glee “Here comes Burb!!”
Barb would love for you all to remember her as you would see her, growing up with 3 brothers and 7 sisters, helping care for her younger siblings while they played “Jeff and John” or tried setting the bedroom on fire (Randy). Early adulthood would put her face to face with a man they all called “Porky”, and if you asked her, she really didn’t want to meet him. As luck would have it, they met after many attempts of dodging the chance and after 42 years of marriage they had one daughter Kelly (Davis) Mottorn, that she claimed was her greatest accomplishment (on most days). On May 4th 2012, she gained a fantastic son-in-law Josh Mottorn, who quickly became her favorite.
Barb claimed many adopted children over the years, she turned away no one. Her first adopted son, Aaron Breisch, who you may know by one of his many names Nar-nan, Air brush, Yoder, or Lollypop, but her per personal favorite was son. There are so many others and they know who they are, may her love, advice, and compassion live in you all, but don’t forget to live like it’s your last with love for all.
