Barbara L. (Palermo) Christensen

Barbara L. Christensen, age 72 of Burnsville, MN died of cancer on June 10, 2019. She was born in Racine, WI where she raised her children and worked as a Middle School Spanish teacher. She later moved to Overland Park, KS and then after retirement moved to Burnsville, MN to be closer to family. She is survived by husband Gary; son Joe; daughter Stephanie; brother John (Pam); Sister Louise (Ed); Stepson Lee, and 4 grandchildren and 2 step grandchildren. Barb was a true Italian woman in all aspects with her family coming first and food a close second. There was always enough pasta to feed an entire neighborhood. She enjoyed spending time with her many friends, her grandchildren, and her grand puppies. A Celebration of Life service will be held Wednesday, June 19, 11 AM at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Burnsville. Visitation at 9:30 AM (1 ½ hour prior to service). In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to St. Jude Cancer Research or Our Lady of Peace Hospice…where Mom was taken care of during her last days.
