Barbara L. Goodwin, 80, of Elverson, passed away on Wednesday, November 17, 2021, under the care of Hickory House of Honey Brook.  She was the widow of the late Steven Stearly, with whom she shared 30 years of marriage.  

Born in Coatesville, Barbara was the daughter of the late Helen (Lindsey) and Joseph Linnenbaugh.  She was a graduate of Radnor High School and worked for the custodial department at the Penn State Berks Campus and at Pepperidge Farms.

Barbara was a generous person, who enjoyed giving gifts to her loved ones. She adored her nieces and nephews and their children. Barbara was energetic and had a laugh that was all her own. In her earlier years, she found joy in sunbathing, vacationing at the beach, and attending the Devon Horse Show.  In her later years, she found the most joy in spending time with her loved ones, especially her great-grandson, Gage, and great-granddaughter, Hunter. Throughout her life, Barbara demonstrated ongoing interests in collecting Fox Art décor and learning about the Kennedy Family. She always ended her day with a bowl of her favorite ice cream.

Barbara is survived by her daughter, Lisa Linnenbaugh; granddaughter Nicole Davis, wife of Jon; great-grandchildren, Gage and Hunter; and daughter-in-law, Patricia Miller.  She was predeceased by her son, Richard Goodwin, Jr.
