Barbara E. Loomans

Barbara Ellen Loomans, a devoted mother, grandmother and life-long resident of Waupun, WI, died unexpectedly on July 23, 2017, at the age of 64 at Waupun Memorial Hospital from a pulmonary embolism.  

Barbara is survived by her husband, Harris; their daughter and her husband, Nicole and Bob Krahn, and their children, Brianna (14) and Aidan (10); and their son and his wife, Adam and Rachel Loomans, and their children Esmé (7) and Elena (4).

Barbara was born on June 25, 1953, the daughter of James Landaal and Harriet Loomans.  Barbara received her LPN degree and worked at Dodge Correctional as a dental hygienist. Barbara was an avid reader who loved spending time with her family, always knew the right things to say, gave the most heartfelt advice and proudly carried the title of #1 cheerleader for the family.  She was selfless and loved her grandkids more than life itself.  Barbara is now at peace and will live on in the memories of the people she touched.  Her family will hold a private ceremony to honor her wishes.  In leu of flowers, memorial donations can be sent in her name to the Waupun Public Library, 123 S Forest St, PO Box 391, Waupun WI  53963.
