Barbara Ricciuti Beebe
Barb Ricciuti Beebe passed away at home surrounded by family on October 1st, 2019. She was born on May 8th, 1947 to the late Albert and Helen Mohr in Youngstown, Ohio.
Barb left her mark on this world and leaves a legacy that those close to her will always remember. She gave herself willingly to those in need, had a smile that could light up a room, loved everyone unconditionally, and always found the best in others She whole heartedly lived out Ephesians 4:32 - “and be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.”
So many lives were positively impacted and changed for the better because of her! She was a supporting wife, a loving mother, a grandmother with words of wisdom and a best friend. She taught us to be kinder to one another, choose our words more carefully, be patient with one another and don't begrudge each other a minute here or an hour there. Most importantly, she taught us to take life one day at a time, do not regret yesterday or worry about tomorrow. Hold on a little longer with each hug and always remember to say, “I love you”.
Barb is preceded in death by her true love and first husband Robert “Bob” Ricciuti, her parents, grandparents, brother, cousins, friends, Bumper, Alex and so many more. She is survived by her husband David Beebe, Son Todd, Daughters Amy (Brett Douglas), Robyn (Robert Culp), Aubrey and lifelong friend James. Her grandchildren Samantha, Madison, Ciera, Zoey, Lexi, Adrianna, and RJ, many nieces, nephews, fur children, and friends.
Barb left precious memories, words of wisdom and unforgettable lessons; she left us with things to do, to think about and to live by. She reminded us that our lives are precious, to love everyone and to never be afraid of where we are going and that there is a reason for everything even if we don’t understand it now.
The hearts of many feel a profound sense of loss and we will wait for the day to once again hear the sound of your voice or feel the warmth of your hugs. Our memories together, fill our hearts and the lessons you instilled in each of us remain in the forefront of everything we do. You will always have a date and front row seats to all of our lives.

You are all precious to me and knowing and loving each of you was my life’s biggest success! Remember to always do what is right, be kind and help others. Today and every day after is a beautiful day, live life out loud and to the fullest.
