It is with tremendous sadness that AARC announces the passing of Alberta Barnes, long time board member and supporter of the work of this organization, on Monday January 31, 2022. Alberta always brought a smile and endless enthusiasm for community work to everything she did. Her tireless work on behalf of AARC helped sustain the organization and raise awareness of the important work we are doing throughout St. Joseph County.

While she may be gone, her spirit and dedication to South Bend, her family and friends will carry on forever.
