Deep condolences from the Knorr family and RKI colleagues that worked with, and all loved, Bob and Barbara. Barbara was Bob's perfect counterpart. She represented all that is good, she was the most delightful, creative, intellectual, and inspiring person I have known. I am so sorry that she is not with us. Deep Sympathy to family and dear friends. With love and regret, Richard & Gwenyth Knorr

I was shocked to hear about Barbara's passing last week and send my love to her kids and family. Barbara and Bob were good friends, and her laugh and epic stories will never be forgotten. Love to all.
