Barbara Flandreau

Barbara Lee Flandreau née Robway, born October 14,1935 in South Bend, Indiana, to Margaret and Joseph Robway, peacefully passed away June 10, 2015 after a long and courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. 

Barbara moved often but spent most of her formative years in Cincinnati, Ohio, where she was a cheerleader, Homecoming Queen and voted "Most Popular." She attended Miami University but soon swapped text books for diapers and her new vocation was "born." 

After raising two daughters in Deerfield and Lake Forest, Illinois, she started her next venture -- working for Citicorp and Diners Club. Barbara moved to San Francisco, where she gained more experience in the corporate world at Gump's and later bought Shorebirds, the beloved gift and home decor store, in Belvedere, CA.

Thirteen years later, "Bubby," sold the business and then joined her two daughters and their families in Southern California. She spent the next four years enjoying her retirement with her new friends in Rancho Mirage. She never lost her sense of style, fun and shopping stamina. 

In addition to her two devoted daughters, Cindy Helfrich and Suzy McCarthy, Barbara is survived by their loving families; son-in-laws, Jim Helfrich and Gary McCarthy and her six cherished grandchildren, Jack, Carly and Ted Helfrich and Whit, Andrew and Kelly McCarthy.

Donations may be made to the National Pancreatic Cancer Foundation, www.NPCF.us.
