It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Barbara Perret on Jun 5, 2024. Born on September 13, 1953, Barbara's light was extinguished too soon, leaving a profound void in the hearts of all who knew and loved her.

Barbara was a vibrant woman whose spark was ever-present in her laughter, in her eyes, and in her life's passions. Her favorites ranged from the music of Ringo Starr and The Beatles to the thrilling heights of a Godzilla movie. As an ardent supporter of her favorite sports team, the SF Giants and her favorite player, Willie Mays, she was always ready to celebrate their victories. However, her achievements encompassed so much more than admiration for pop culture and sports. Barbara was an amazing baker and chef, often filling the homes of her loved ones with decadent aromas and a kitchen full of laughter.

Her personality, described best as funny, ornery, but ever loving, radiated to everyone around her, warming every room she entered with joy. She epitomized strength, resilience, and love. The greatest lesson Barbara imparted on those she left behind was to never take loved ones for granted - a testament to her unwavering care and concern for her family and friends.

She is survived by her brother, Gib Lewman, and her nieces, Carie Gloeckner and Jessica Padron. Her cousin, Pam Hough also survives her. Predeceasing Barbara were her beloved spouse, Bill Perret, her mother, Susan Lewman, her father, Gilbert Lewman, and her brother, Daniel Lewman.

Barbara’s legacy will be one of love for her family and kindness to others. The memory of her will forever be triggered by the sights and sounds of a Godzilla movie or the drumbeats and melodies of Ringo Starr.

May Barbara’s soul find peace and may her laughter and love echo in our hearts forever. Rest in peace, Barbara. Your memory will always be a treasure to those who knew you.
