Barbara Lee (Dicks) Hart, 79 formally of Latrobe PA, died peacefully on Sunday Nov. 28, 2021. at her residence in Springfield Missouri surrounded by her family.  Barbara was born to the late Richard and Mary (Byler) Dicks on Oct. 10, 1942 and raised in New Wilmington Pennsylvania. She married Lewis Hart and in 1966 the newlyweds moved to Latrobe Pennsylvania and began their family.  Barb valiantly fought against a rare disease, Syringomyelia for the last 40 years which took away many of her physical abilities and required her to be tough to face each day and each new challenge presented.  Her escape and joys were in that she loved Soap Operas, animals, jigsaw puzzles, board games, Pirate Baseball and watching the Steelers.  She looked forward to the spring where you could always find her outside enjoying the sunshine.  She was always happiest when her family was around.  In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her siblings Phyllis Greer of Colorado Springs, CO, Marjorie (Midge) Facko of Hermitage PA, Rosemary Verrelli of Port Orange Fl, and her loving husband of 55 years, Lewis Hart.  She is survived by her three sons and six grandchildren; Patrick, Amsterdam, Netherlands (Robert & Callula); Ryan and his wife Jennie, Springfield Missouri (Isabel & Anna); Michael and his wife Nicole, Latrobe (Dominic & Abigale); brother Richard Dicks and wife Carol of Alexandria, Ohio and sister-in-law Rebecca (Hart) Moore and her husband Charles and numerous nieces and nephews.  Barb’s family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of the wonderful caregivers that have supported her, in her illness, through the years.  As per the family wishes, there will be no visitation. A private memorial service will be held.  Arrangements are being handled by Frederick Funeral Home, Inc., 1543 Ligonier Street, Latrobe, PA 15650.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the American Syringomyelia & Chiari Alliance Project at or ASAP, PO Box 1586, Longview, TX 75606-1586.  Online condolences may be made at
