Barbara was born on October 22, 1936, in Altoona PA, the daughter of the late Michael J. and Margaret B. Haag. She was a housewife and loved to take care of her family, cook for family gatherings, create ceramics and paint. Barbara was Lutheran by faith, though her health didn’t allow her to attend as often as she would like to have. Barbara will always be remembered for her favorite quote, “I’m hanging in there’.
Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by her loving husband, William Lorne Kokowicz.
She is survived by her son, Michael (Julie) Kokowicz; daughter, Cheryl Lang; grandson, Joel Lang; three granddaughters, Amy (Staci) Austin, Sara (Chris) Hale, and Destiny Hampton; two great grandsons; Brock and Jaxon Hale; two great granddaughters, Marissa Mailhot and Allyson Layfield; friend and caregiver Fay Whale; as well as several extended family and caring friends.
