Barbara Shinn

December 8, 1946 — February 9, 2023

Barbara Lee Shinn, 76, of Quakertown, passed away on February 9th, 2023, at Independence Court of Quakertown. Barbara was the daughter of the late Charles Suelke and Eva Suelke (Wambold).

Barbara was a go-getter, she was tough, determined, and nothing could stop her. She loved the Lord and was born again in her late 30’s. Barbara and her husband, Charles, treasured life and were always willing to help someone in need. Barbara and her husband worked with Crossroads Pregnancy Care and helped many families in need. Barbara also participated in many ministries throughout the years, supporting missionaries in the U.S and abroad.

Barbara volunteered at Christ Community Bible Church. She was a great Sunday School teacher and always had arts & crafts ready for the kids to make at school. In her free time, Barbara enjoyed sewing quilts, gardening, cooking, and baking. She was a great cook; she could make anything. Barbara’s greatest pleasure in life was spending time with and supporting her family and children.

Barbara will be dearly missed by her husband, Charles Shinn, together they shared 58 years of marriage; her children, Vickie Hagenbuch (Michael), Lorie Shinn, Fran Baughman, and Letitia Hinkie; her siblings, Kenneth Suelke (Becky), Nancy Vieczorek (Dave), William Suelke (Judy), and Dennis Suelke (Faith); her 10 grandchildren; and 8 great-grandchildren.

The family would like to thank the staff at Independence Court of Quakertown for treating Barbara so well, like their own mother. The family says the staff are gifts of mercy and they are truly grateful for the care the staff provided during this difficult time.
