Barbara Jean Eckerman

Barbara Jean Eckerman, 90, passed away peacefully on May 25, 2024, with her loving family around her.

She is survived by her four children, Sandra Eckerman, Debra Rojas, Sharon DeLong, and Robert Eckerman; daughter-in-law, Gwyn Eckerman; ten grandchildren; twenty three great-grandchildren, and two great great-grandchildren.

She was proceeded in death by her husband of 53 years, Walter John Eckerman, “Bud”. Together, Barbara and Bud started their family in 1951, residing in both Roseville, CA, and Truckee, CA, and finally settling in Yuba City, CA, where she lived for more than fifty years. She was cared for by her children until she entered assisted living three years ago.

Barbara lived a full life: she ran her own daycare for many years, devoted her free time to homemaking, travelled with family, and participated in many Eckerman reunions. She will be remembered by all who love her.
