    Got word last evening that Barb Hermes has passed after a long, courageous battle with cancer.

    Barb was one of finest Illinois lady shooters and helped promote and encourage fellow women shooters with the "Barbie Trophy" at the state shoot.

    I always enjoyed shooting with Barb, her attitude and enthusiasm for our sport made it not so bad to get "beat by a girl."

    Our condolences to Pat and family on your loss.

    Ron Jr. and the Cox family.

    We are so sorry to hear of Barbs passing. I always enjoyed "joshing" with her. I will not forget the hottest day ever at the Linn Creek! Barb pulled up in her car, rolled down the window and said "Have some cold air"!! What a relief!!!We laughed about that many times.

    Carol and I will surely miss her and the fluffy dog. Rest in peace, Barb.

    Carol and Merlyn

    What a sad day, many will miss her smiling face and a tough competitor who thought of her fellow trapshooting sisters! Barb came to me a few years ago and wanted to establish a trophy-for c & d class ladies. She said then she remembered what it was like to be in their shoes! Heaven has another winner! Diane

    Pat,
    Our deepest condolences to you and all of Barb's family. Though she enjoyed "bling", Barb's real sparkle was her personality, fantastic sense of humor and embrace of life. Sincerely, Tom and Donna Guerin

    Deepest sympathies to Pat and family. Barb was a wonderfully talented trap shooter and a complete delight to shoot with. Barb will be missed on the line but will live on in our minds and hearts.
