Barbara S. (Saintignon) Hiatt, 82, of Greenville, Ohio passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, April 25, 2019 at her residence.
She was born on August 7, 1936 in Greenville to the late Bernard and Naomi (Thompson) Saintignon.
In addition to her parents, Barb was preceded in death by her daughter, Angie Keiser; and her brothers, Marion, Melvin, and Duane Saintignon.
Barb loved to work hard and play even harder. When she was not working as a nurse’s aide, she could be found at the bowling alley. She bowled for over 35 years, earning respect from many local bowlers. Her skill led her to earn many awards and titles over the years. When she was at home, Barb enjoyed being outdoors working in her flower beds, mowing the yard, and watching the birds. She put many puzzles together and had them framed for others to enjoy. Barb loved to spend time with her family and cooking for them. She was known for the abundance of food that she would prepare for anyone who would join her for a meal. Barb was a follower of Christ and attended Saint Mary’s Catholic Church in Union City, Indiana.
