AU SABLE FORKS — Barbara L. (Booth) Gero died on Nov. 2, 2013, surrounded by her loving family. She was born on Aug. 7, 1959, in Plattsburgh, N.Y. She was the daughter of James and Barbara Booth.

She was the Robin to his Batman, and they went on many adventures together.

She enjoyed reading, crossword puzzles, playing Words with Friends, cooking, gambling, and watching her nieces and nephews play sports.
