Barbara Ann Dennis (Lauderdale), age 66 was called upon unexpectedly. Barbara was a native of Monterey and met her husband John while in junior high school at the age of 12. They were inseparable ever since. After getting married in 1970, her husband John was drafted into the service and served in Vietnam. When he returned home, they raised two children; Eve and Richard. She focused on raising the children while her husband enjoyed a lifetime career as an automobile technician. They enjoyed making frequent trips to Reno and Lake Tahoe. Barbara was an avid Bingo player. Until her passing, she enjoyed going to Table Mountain and Chuckchansi Casino with her daughter Eve. Barbara always helped everyone, even when she barely had enough for her own family. She made sure everyone was okay. She enjoyed her family most of all; spending weekends with her grandchildren and having everybody come over to eat during every holiday, birthday celebration, or just because.
Barbara was preceded by her brothers, Michael Lauderdale (1983), John Lauderdale (2003), David Lauderdale (2010) and Fred J. Lauderdale Jr (2016). Her father Fred J. Lauderdale Sr. (2002) and mother Lorraine maiden Arellano (2006).
She leaves behind her husband, John D. Dennis Jr. of 47 years, her daughter, Eve (Matias), son Richard (Tammy) and grandchildren Johnny, Lily, Ryan, Alyssa, Eli, nieces, nephews and cousins .
We would like to thank Dr. Harry Jang for being a part of her care-team for many years and Dr. Nancy Rubin for fighting so hard to place her back onto the lung transplant list after her battle with breast cancer in 2010. This allowed us almost 7 more years with her, after her double lung transplant in 2011; which was performed by the amazing lung transplant team at UCSF.
A Celebration of her life will be held Saturday June 16, 2018 at The Moose Lodge Monterey, 555 Canyon Del Rey Blvd. Del Rey Oaks, Ca. 93940 from 12:00p.m.-3:00p.m.
We ask to please give any donations to a charity of your choice or just drop an extra $20 in your favorite slot machine for her. “Grammy” as she was known by those closest to her; will be greatly missed and is deeply loved by her family members. We love you!
