Barbara was born on 12-16-1952 in Washington DC to Edmund Joseph and Mary Ann Bingle (both deceased). She was the third of 6 children. At 3 yrs of age the family moved to SLC, Utah.

Barbara graduated from Judge Memorial High School in 1971. She worked 42 years, in Custodial Services, at the University of Utah. Barbara took great pride in her job as crew leader in numerous departments. She was appreciated for her words of encouragement to her crew members to perform their very best. Barbara was recognized for the excellent outcome of those she supervised.

Barbara will be missed for her wit, quick sense of humor, generous heart, intellectual discussions regarding the latest book or article she read, & the numerous stories told regarding her 2 cats. She enjoyed lunch dates with friends, small dinner parties and road trips. She would converse in depth with almost anyone regarding almost any topic. One would easily be captured by Barbara's vast vocabulary and hilarious quips. Her love for sports, whether professional or college, always took priority on her big screen and were also a regular source for in depth conversations with friends and family.

Barbara was preceded in death by her long-term friend Cris Moore, by her brothers Richard and Matthew. She was survived by Joanne Bingle Koenig, Edmund Joseph Bingle and Michael John Bingle, 3 nieces and 5 nephews, 3 sister-in-laws and 1 brother-in-law.

The family will be celebrating a small private memorial this Summer. Any donations in her honor may be given to Shriners Hospital for Children or St. Jude's Hospital, her favorite sites for donations.

I was hired to take Barbara's place as a Crew Lead in Merrill Engineering at the University of Utah. I did not come close when it came to filling her shoes. With respect and admiration. Rest in Peace
