Barbara Blaufuss: March 1, 1951 - June 17, 2011

Barbara Blaufuss, EFM vendor who sold honey and occasional crafts at the market, passed away at the home of her sister in Lawrence after a long struggle with cancer.

Barbara worked for Southwestern Bell for more than 30 years and more recently for Westar Energy. She grew up in Olpe and received her Bachelor of Arts and Masters degrees from Emporia State University.

Barbara was well known for her work as a volunteer with Camp Alexander, the Kiwanis Club, and the League of Women Voters.

Memorial contributions may be made in her name to Camp Alexander or to the Oncology Center at Lawrence Memorial Hospital. A memorial service will be scheduled for a later date.
