Barbara J. Denlinger, 70, of Lititz, went to Heaven on Sunday May 23, 2021 at UPMC Lititz. Born January 19, 1951, Barbara was the daughter of the late Richard and Neva (Leonard) Lantz.

Barbara was an assembler and group leader for StarDental. Through the years, she enjoyed square dancing and camping all around the United States with notable stops in Petrified Forest National Park, the Pacific Coast of California, Yellowstone National Park, and Grand Teton National Park. Barbara was the life of the party, had a beautiful smile, and will be missed dearly by her beloved family.

To cherish her memory, Barbara leaves her husband of 52 years, Eugene Denlinger; a son: Richard Denlinger husband of Tracey; two sisters: Linda Sloat wife of Daniel and Abbie Palumbo wife of Michel; two grandchildren: Kyle Denlinger husband of Stephanie and Jamison Denlinger husband of Ashley; as well as two treasured great-grandchildren: Riley and Clayton. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by two sisters.

A celebration of life service will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, 1054 New Holland Avenue Lancaster, PA 17601.

I was sorry to hear about the passing of Barb.   She was a great friend who worked with me making arrangements for country line dances for the Red Rose Country Dance Organization. She helped to set up tables and made table decorations and was a great dancer with whom I enjoyed a dance or two.  When we went out country dancing at Low Places and others venues, she and Gene were part of our group who travled together.  We enjoyed many, many wonderful evenings together partying, eating and dancing. Laughing and having fun.
She was the life of the party; will miss her dearly.
My condolences to Gene and all of their family members.

My condolences on the passing of Barb. I worked with Barb for many years at StarDental, most noteably when the X-ray unit was purchased from North Charleston SC. She was instrumental in getting that up and producing units and then later helped ithe transferring it to a company on Long Island NY. She was truly a delight to know and work with. God’s Blessing to the family. Deon Beck
