Barbara Joyce Hatten

Barbara Joyce Hatten, beloved wife, mother, and grandmother, was born to Gertrude and Jack Hill in December 1936 in Santa Cruz, California, and passed away on Monday, July 1, 2013.  She raised her children in California but in later life relocated with her husband, Christian Hatten, up to his native Idaho.  Barbara loved animals and instilled that love in her children.  She always had a dog and cat in her home and her lap was a favorite resting place for her pets.  Her living room was always graced with a piano and Barbara often filled the house with her wonderful playing.  She had a beautiful smile that could light up a room.  Barbara was devoted to her husband and dearly loved her children and grandchildren, who were the light of her life in later  years.   She will be greatly missed by her children Deborah Hurley, Linda Currey, Tracy Currey, Cathy Morton, and John Currey.  She was predeceased by her husband Chris and her parents, as well as many lifelong friends.
