She married Robert Mee and after spending several years in upstate New York, they moved to the Washington Metropolitan area and lived in Tantallon and Potomac, MD where they raised their three children.

She worked at St. Anne’s Maternity Home for many years and also was a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteer. Barbara was a great friend to all she knew. She loved to golf, ski, travel the world, play bridge, attend Neil Diamond concerts and spend time with friends and family. After the death of her husband, Barbara moved to Edgewater, MD to be closer to family and spend time with her grandchildren who were her greatest treasure. She was a member of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church and the South County Senior Center in Edgewater. Barbara was preceded in death by her husband of 55 years, Robert E. Mee. She is survived by her three children and their spouses, Michele Mee Phillips (Jim) of Richmond, VA, Martin Mee (Tracy) of Sykesville, MD and Molly Mee (Tom Fridrich) of Harwood, MD. Barbara was best known as “Grandma” to her seven grandchildren, Patrick (Julia) and Molly Phillips, Maggie Mee Adams (Eddy), Matthew, Reagan and Joseph Mee and Noah Fridrich.
