United Media Productions co-Founder
Barbara Dexter died at home on Friday, December 23, 2011 after a very swift decline from pancreatic cancer. Her Celebration of Life was on January 7, 2012, at Unity of Berkeley. Barbara was accompanied by her brother Craig, by her cats, Tux and Jude, by her colleagues from United Media Productions, and by other loving family, friends, and colleagues during the last weeks of her life.
Barbara’s cousin Mary from the east coast shared this about their nightly phone conversations: “There’s no question in my mind that Barbara knew her blessings, as I often reminded her that she was surrounded by people caring about her, trying to support her through all that was to come, holding her up as best we could…. There were many times in my working years when I realized that there are SO many people who are ALONE…, whether they are surrounded by people or not…. I asked Barbara how many people she could think of whose cousin would call from clear across the country to do “bed checks” every night! She would laugh but then turn it to counting her blessings. And I really feel that she KNEW how to count those blessings, no matter what.”
