Barbara Jo (Green) Steinkamp, 59, of Sac City, Iowa, passed away on Wednesday, April 11, 2018, at Trinity Regional Medical Center in Fort Dodge, Iowa, due to declining health.

Mass of the Christian Burial was Monday, April 16, at St. Mary Catholic Church in Sac City, with Father Larry McCarty officiating.

Farber & Otteman Funeral Home of Sac City was in charge of arrangements. Barbara and Randy were interred together Monday on Barb’s 60th birthday at Oakland Cemetery in Sac City.

Barb was born April 16, 1958, at Loring Hospital in Sac City, to Dave and Grace (Duffy) Green.

She grew up in Sac City and attended Sac Community Schools graduating with the Class of 1976. She was baptized at St. Mary Catholic Church in Sac City.

Barb entered the restaurant and hospitality business following high school and lived in Fort Dodge as well as Omaha. She then decided it was time to fulfill her dream of living in Florida. She moved there, continuing to work in the restaurant business, and at the same time being able to enjoy the sun and the water that she loved so much. Barb then decided to move closer to home and returned to Iowa. It was then, through a mutual friend, that she met her husband, Randy Steinkamp. The two were married on Randy’s birthday, May 5, 1995, at Holy Angels Catholic Church in Roselle, Iowa. They lived in Halbur, Iowa, for several years before returning to Sac City in 2011, where she worked at Sac County Abstract Company until recently.

Not having children of her own, Barb enjoyed spending time with her five Green nephews, usually spoiling them rotten. She loved her two cats, which were “Her Girls.”

The past couple of years Barb spent helping her mother with her needs. They could be seen out driving around the lake or going here or there and were able to spend real quality time together.

Barb is survived by her brother Mike (Jeani) Green of Sac City; nephews David (Katie), Patrick (Mary), Jim (Cassie), Ian and Alex Green; aunts Janet (Green) Saggau of Milford, Iowa, and Donita Duffy of Sac City; mother-in-law, Ruth Steinkamp of Carroll, Iowa; sister-in-law Cathy (John) Vonnahme of Arcadia, Iowa; brothers-in-law Kevin (Marie) Steinkamp of Logan, Iowa, and Bob (Julie) Steinkamp of Arcadia; many cousins, extended family members and friends.

Barb was preceded in death by her husband, Randy, on March 26, 2018; parents, David and Grace Green; brother Robert Green; sister-in-law Linda Green; father-in-law, Dale Steinkamp; maternal grandparents, Frank and Mayme Duffy; and paternal grandparents, Roy and Clara Green.
