Barbara A. Roush, 84, an amazing wife, mother, sister, and grandmother of Hughesville, died Friday, March 2, 2018 at Williamsport Regional Medical Center, after a brief challenging illness. Born January 11, 1934 in Danville, she was a daughter of the late J. Lester and Hazel M. (Hower) Campbell. She was married to the late Kenneth H. Roush, who preceded her in death on May 18, 1995. Barbara was a very active woman in her community, as a leader of the Girl Scouts, a Cub Scout den leader, the PTA, and the 4-H. She was also a business woman, and was a former co-owner of the Ground Chuck, Hughesville, and her own catering service. She was also previously employed as Teacher’s Aide at Danville Area School District, and worked as a Medical Records Coordinator for Geisinger Medical Center. She volunteered at both Hughesville and Riverside Fire Departments and Family Promise. She was very active in her church, the former Christ United Methodist Church, now The Beacon, a Methodist Church, Hughesville, where she was a board member and active volunteer. Barbara loved helping neighbors, and helping those in need. In her spare time she enjoyed cooking, baking, and sewing school bags to those in need and Christmas cantata costumes for her church. Above all Barbara enjoyed spending time with her family, friends, and loved ones. Her example of being a servant to those around her have encouraged others to reach out in their worlds.

(Diane) Roush of Williamsport; three daughters, Deborah A. (Michael) Reich of Tucson, AZ, Sally Diane (Michael, Sr.) O'Shea of Springfield, and Brenda L.
