Barbara Ann Prescott was born in Le Mars, Iowa on January 23, 1954, the youngest child of Eldred and E. Marjorie (Struve) McIntire. She came home to a sister Mildred and a brother William (Bill). Barbara attended school in Marcus where she played basketball throughout high school. She met Ron Prescott and they were married on December 24, 1971.
Barb was a loving mother to three children, Roxanne, Rhonda and William (Billy). She worked at the Mental Health Institute until 1994 and then took a position at the Marcus-Meriden-Cleghorn High School as a custodian until she retired due to a disability.
Barb loved spending time with her family including her children’s friends who made her house a second home. Her grandchildren kept her fighting through her battle with cancer and gave her hugs and smiles on difficult days. Barb and Ron celebrated 47 years of marriage this past Christmas and enjoyed retirement by riding the motorcycle and their annual trips to South Padre Island, Texas with friends.
