Barbara Marilee Harbold was born in Chicago, Illinois on August 28, 1941, the youngest of three children to parents Earl Wakeman Brann and Adeline D. Navolio. She passed away on May 24, 2020, at her home in Layton, Utah. As a teenager, Barbara moved to California where she met and later married Bruce Wayne Harbold in December of 1960. They would go on to have five children. They later divorced.
During her lifetime, Barbara was an avid genealogist who loved to share her talents while helping others find their family history. She worked as a geriatrics nurse for over 25 years, and enjoyed the special bonds she had with her patients. Barbara was also talented at crocheting, sewing, and painting. Many friends and family were recipients of these talents. She was at her happiest when spending time with her grandchildren.
Barbara is survived by four of her children; Jeffrey Harbold (Karen), James Harbold (Joy), Kerry Nikula (Arn), and Jennifer Maloy (Steven), as well as twelve grandchildren (Jeffrey, Spencer, Joseph, Christopher, Jamie, Marilee, Sandra, Jessica, Mitchell, Andrew, Sean, and Timothy) and three great-grandchildren (Madden, Tagg, and Kennedy). She was preceded in death by husband Bruce Harbold, son Daniel Harbold, and grandson Erik Maloy.
Barbara will be interred at Pleasant Grove City Cemetery, 500 North 100 West, Pleasant Grove, Utah. There will be a graveside service at 11:00 am, Thursday May 28, 2020. Condolences may be sent to the family at www.olpinmortuary.com.
