Barbara A. Curtin (Ruehling)

Barbara A. Ruehling Curtin, of Warminster, died all too soon, on Wednesday, July 27, 2022, at Abington Hospital. She was 61.

Barbara was born in Elkins Park, PA, and raised in Feasterville. She is the daughter of Barbara Ann Koppi Ruehling of Newtown and the late Frederick Ruehling Jr. Barbara graduated from Neshaminy Langhorne High School in 1979.

Barbara was a loving, compassionate woman. She loved life to the fullest. When Barbara wasn’t working at her job of 17 1/2 years at Icon Medical Imaging in Blue Bell PA, she enjoyed her down time being around family, friends and her 3 Golden Retrievers. She always welcomed anyone and everyone into her home with open arms, she would often go by as “Momma Curtin”. She enjoyed baking with her granddaughter and she was very well known for her homemade brownies and chocolate chip cookies. She enjoyed gardening and always had flowers around especially her favorite flower tulips. She enjoyed weekend trips out to Lancaster, PA with her husband and shopping at all the Amish stores. She loved spending time down the shore in the summer with her parents and her kids and husband. She loved sitting outside on the porch in her rocking chairs. She loved holiday time and cooking for everyone, especially Christmas. She was very well known for holiday decorations and was always complemented on her Christmas tree. Even after all she endured medically, she always kept a smile on her face and a positive attitude and was ready to face whatever life threw at her. She will forever be missed but never forgotten.
