 Barbara was the owner of CRS Travelers in Hayward as a Travel Agent for over 28 years. She was a member of the Manteca Historical Society and was heavily involved in the Manteca Ag Tour.  She loved to travel as she went on many tours enjoying every part of other countries as well as the US. Her dream was to visit Africa not on business but on pleasure and her dream came true in 2004. She loved photography as it was shown in her many travels. She was an excellent seamstress and loved to collect many types of moose figurines and knick knacks. She enjoyed her outings with her companion “Smitty” going to dinners and to the lastest movie flick. Barbara was a care taker at heart as she always made sure everyone was fed and their amenities were taken care of. Barbara will be remembered as a good person who had a heart of gold.     

 Mrs. Stokes services are being handled by P.L. Fry & Son Funeral Home of Manteca. A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 3, at 1 p.m. at P.L. Fry & Son Funeral Home 290 N. Union Road, Manteca. Donations in lieu of flowers can be sent to Hospice of San Joaquin. An online guest book is available at under obituaries.
