On July 20, 1941, Barb was born in Dunbar, PA, to the late Frank and Mary (De Angelo) Grass. She was also preceded in death by her brother, George E. Grass.
Barb was the beloved wife of fifty-four years to Thomas Procup and the loving mother of Cara (Joe) Marino of Cranberry Twp, PA.
A graduate of Monongahela high school, Barb, went to Maison Felix Beauty School in Pittsburgh before opening "Barb's Beauty Shop" in Monongahela. She met her husband, who happened to live next door to her aunt in McKeesport, and soon became an active member of the community. Barb was a faithful parishioner of Mary, Mother of God Parish (formerly St. Mary Czestochowa), as well as a representative of the Joint Task Force for Renzie Park.
In her free time, Barb loved to shop, make crafts, bake and talk about the "Good old days in Dunbar."
Barb was a people person, social and friendly with everyone! She loved meeting new people and making new friends. Above all else, Barb cherished her role as a devoted wife and mother. She will be remembered as a wonderful, caring, and loving woman who made everyone she encountered feel important. She will be deeply missed by her loving family and friends.
