Barbara began playing the organ when she was 14 years old at St. Mary’s Catholic Church of Ellis Grove. She became a lifelong parishioner and continued playing the organ for more than 40 years."

Morning Business February 25, 2016
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"In early January, surgeons at Prairie Heart Institute in my hometown of Springfield, IL, operated on a local woman from Decatur. The doctors replaced two diseased heart valves with artificial valves that were threaded into position inside catheters, smaller than the width of a pencil. This procedure is known as a double trans-catheter valve replacement. This successful surgery was only the fourth of its kind in the United States, and the first in the world to use the latest generation of artificial valves. The lead surgeons were from Prairie and Southern Illinois University School of Medicine. Had the valve not been replaced, the patient would have faced a substantially higher risk for death from congestive heart failure."
