Barbara Kochanski Kirkman, a resident of Slagle, Louisiana, passed from her earthly home after losing her battle with cancer. Barbara was born on August 29, 1945, on the Southside of Pittsburgh, PA and lived there until she married her husband, Phillip, and afterward she traveled with him in the military all over the United States and a short tour overseas in Germany. Over 35 years ago, Phil and Barbara chose to settle down in Slagle where they worked at Slagle Grocery and later Slagle Mall for almost the entire 35 years. For those who knew them well, Barbara was lovingly know as “Barb”. God has a way of placing His angels among us, and there is no doubt Barb was one of God’s special people, as Barb’s special, unique gift was simply to love everyone! Phil assisted the Slagle Grocery and Slagle Mall in pricing items on the shelves, making minor repairs, and thousands of trips into town to pick up items needed for the store, and wherever Phil went, Barb would be two steps behind making sure that Phil knew she was his number one helper. But when Barb would see one of her favorite customers drive up to the store (they were all her favorites), she would run to them with a big smile and a hug to welcome them to Slagle. At Christmas, Barb’s favorite time of the year, she and Phil would give out special gifts to many. She and Phil loved Bubba Haymon, and every Christmas he was graced with a beautiful shirt. The good people of Slagle have lost a very special friend, and her absence will be sorely missed.
Barb was preceded in death by her parents, Edmond and Anna Kochanski.
Left to cherish her sweet, loving memories are her husband of almost 50 years, Phillip Kirkman
Sisters: Mary Ann Ebitz and husband Robert and Susan Peoples and husband William all of Oakmont, PA
Nephew: Michael Ebitz of Oakmont, PA
Niece: Melissa Freshour and husband Matt of Flagstaff, AZ
Great nephew: Landon Freshour of Flagstaff, AZ
Great niece: Brook Freshour of Flagstaff, AZ
The family of Barb would like to thank her “Sis” Tracy whom she loved very much and a dear friend Maryln and all her great friends from Slagle and Slagle Store for their love and kindness.
