Barbara Marie (Warner) Redlin of Lenexa, Kan., passed away on Sept. 15, 2019, at the age of 83. Visitation will be held at 9:30 a.m. with Funeral service following at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct 8 at Sacred Heart of Jesus, 5501 Monticello Road, Shawnee, Kan. 

Barbara was born Feb. 8, 1936 in Fargo, N.D., to Earl and Hannah Warner. She grew up in Hillsboro, N.D. and graduated from Hillsboro High School in May of 1954. Barbara loved to sing. In her younger days, she was a member of the recording artists trio, The Peppermints. She also sang in multiple church choirs and LOVED karaoke. 

In 1956 she met the love of her life – Al Redlin – at a dance in Halstad, Minn. They were married in November of 1957 and traveled the country for Al’s work, until the birth of their second daughter. They had three daughters and raised their family, mostly in the Kansas City area, with a few years being spent in Bloomington, Minn. Barbara loved being a stay at home mom, and kept the family busy with camping, boating, square dancing, hiking, snow skiing, parties and the best family vacations. Barbara was a spiritual person and was an active church member. In retirement, they built homes in Sun Lakes, Ariz. and Star Valley Ranch, Wyo. and enjoyed having family and friends visit them. She had a ‘Jesus Room’ in each of her homes where she conducted daily devotions.

Barbara was preceded in death by her parents, Earl and Hannah Warner, siblings; Sonny Warner, Helen Eisenhardt and Dick Warner, daughter Laura Johnson and granddaughter Samantha Valentine. Her legacy will live on through her husband of 61 years, George Alan Redlin, daughters Rita (Tom) Rohrer, Shawnee, Kan., Mary (Steve) Valentine, Lenexa, Kan., her six grandchildren: Melissa, Nicolette, Alex, Mack, Dalton and Scott and three great grandchildren, Ariana, Christian and Ava.

Barbara leaves behind a legacy of grace and love and so we say, “Farewell to you now, our friend, you will be remembered with smiles and laughter.” Barbara will be missed by family and friends alike. (Go to to post remembrances of Barbara.)
