Barbara Ann Grossman, daughter of Edward and Mary (Sanchez) Myers, was born July 22, 1951 in Detroit, MI. Her family lived in Honolulu, HI until she was 12 years and then moved to Rapid City, SD. Barb met her future husband, Richard Grossman, on the Ellsworth Air Force Base where she worked and her dad was stationed. The couple was married on November 14, 1971, and welcomed their son, Jaime, the following summer. The couple moved to Moorhead, MN for Rick to finish his schooling before moving to South Dakota. Barb stayed at home and took care of Jaime until he started school, and the family moved to Morris, MN. She worked at Pamida as a sales associate until she went back to school and earned her Associates Degree in Accounting from Rasmussen College. Following her schooling, Barb went to work for Bremer Bank for 10+ years. She then started working for Riverwood Bank where she continued to work until she retired in 2017.

Barb enjoyed fishing, gardening, and planting flowers in her spare time. She was a huge Vikings fan, even though she never got to see them play in the Super Bowl, and loved attending country music festivals with her girlfriends. Her biggest joy was being able to watch her son, Jaime, grow up and become a father himself. Barb’s biggest blessing was her granddaughter, Grace, who she adored, and loved watching her play hockey.

Barb is survived by her husband: Richard Grossman of Morris, MN; son: Jaime (Jenny) Grossman of Shakopee, MN; one grandchild: Grace Grossman; siblings: Donald (Donna) Riddle of Florida, Debra Jackson of Rapid City, SD, Linda Scott of Bakersfield, CA, and Carol (Jeffrey) Rosinski of Cheyenne, WY; in-laws: Viv Grossman of Eau Claire, WI, Greg (Kathy) Grossman of Morris, MN, Steve (Lori) Grossman of Harwood, ND, John Grossman of Alberta, MN, and Mary (Larry) Friesen of Donnelly, MN; and several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by one grandson: Jackson Grossman; her parents; brothers: Edward Myers, Jr, Richard Myers, Lacy Riddle, Jr. and Gary Myers; sisters: Veronica Sanchez, and Ginger Leigh; mother-in-law and father-in-law: Donald and Shirley Grossman; sister-in-law: Nancy Grossman; brother-in-law: Donald Richard Grossman and nephew: Travis Jorgenson.

In lieu of flowers the family prefers memorials to the Courage Cottage or the Ronald McDonald House.
