Barbara was born in East Orange in 1937 and was one of two children to bless the Hellman family. Her husband Conrad and she settled in Denville, where she ran their family business, Gerstner Cash Registers. She was a devoted wife of 50+ years and a loving mother. She was an avid reader and had a great talent for sewing and decorating her home. Above everything, Barbara loved her family. She was a proud grandmother and great grandmother. She had a very special bond with her grandsons and even more so with her daughter, Pamela. There is great comfort in knowing she is reunited with Conrad and watching over her family with love.
