Barbara A. Hassel, 74

September 08, 2022

Barbara Ann Hassel, 74, of Columbia, passed away at Hospice & Community Care on Thursday, September 8, 2022. Born in Lancaster, she was the daughter of the late Lloyd and Betty (Miller) Hassel.

Barbara was a 1966 graduate of Hempfield High School where she was a Cheerleading and Track star.

She went on to graduate from Penn State and taught English. Barbara loved to write and read poetry throughout her life. Her favorite place to be was at the beach with her toes in the sand. Her laugh was big and infectious, and she was the life of any party.

She was a member of Faith Bible Church in Lancaster.

Her greatest joy in life was spending time with her Grandchildren. She was a loving mother and grandmother and will be very much missed.

Barbara is survived by her daughters, Lisa Haralambie (Cara McGuire) and Kelly Cobb (Spencer Cobb); her grandchildren, Kayla, Keira, and Cameron; and her brothers, Richard Hassel and Robert Hassel.

Services are private.

Barbara Ann I will always remember how we could just start laughing when we got together. Our cookouts with grilled vegetables and of course the entire garlic bulb. Our Kentucky Derby hats. Our walks especially around Long’s Park. Thanks for so many very special memories and photos to go along with the memories. We sure captured the moments throughout the years. You will be missed but I look forward to the time when we will be together again. You are now one of my special Angels in Heaven. Love You 😘  Donna Ernst

Barb was one of my best friends ever, through elementary school all the way through high school.  Although I hadn’t seen her since we graduated over 50 years ago, I will always treasure my memories of all the fun times we had. So sad to hear of her passing. Condolences to her family.
