Barbara Nisbet Berk passed away on October 27, 2012, at the age of 59.
Barbara was born in Melbourne, Australia on May 30, 1953, to Jean and Ron Nisbet. While she was a consummate businesswoman, Barbara's true passion was teaching kids. Both as a volunteer and through her tutoring business, Barbara used teaching as a vehicle to make a difference in young people's lives.
She was a best friend and lover to her husband for 37 years, and a devoted mother to her son. Throughout her life she used her compassion, intellect, and faith to help others. The world was a better place with Barbara in it.
She is survived by her husband Jim Berk, son Christopher Berk, and brother Jim Nisbet.
