Mom and Mrs Danser were Den Mothers to my younger brother Jeff and my cub scout wolf pack. After school, Jeff and I walked out of the Cranbury Elementary School evergreen double doors by the gymnasium, across the soccer field, and through the corn fields that towered over us to the Danser farm and approach their house from the south. The expanse was breath taking for kids. Their crops were tall, green, and sturdy. We caught glimpse of the brookside to the left, and miles of farmland ahead overlooking Pattersons and Protinicks as far as we could see. When we got near to Dansers, we saw their white farmhouse as it still does today, a gleaming white clapboard house and several barns. The house sat on a diamond of grass with the driveway doing around it on both sides depending on your business as a visitor or worker. Their lawn was always cut neatly and everything was well organized and in good working order as you would expect of someone who knew their craft. Of course, their livelihood depended on it so the tractors, pickup, duallies (haul trucks with four wheels on the back) where parked where they should be, at the ready for the pre-dawn to post dusk days they lived, worked, and played. And we all saw how they played from the times we shared in church, picnics, and at informal get togethers in the evening. (My Nerves! As Lonzo used to say 35 feet up on a newly trussed warehouse and Uncle John had us all jumping to finish so the 100 dollar an hour crane operator could finish and not cost any more than he had for us to set 50 - 60 x 20 foot that took ten of us to carry)

On the rear parcel behind their house was a large maple sheltering a large wooden picnic table and benches where Mrs Danser and our Mom hosted our cubbie meetings. I have a picture somewhere of the two of them in their 30’s laughing and enjoying life at a time when everything seemed to be in a summer place for them. Everyone was well, some of us were even getting good grades (Alan was, not me) and our moms had fun, AND…THEY…LOOKED…GREAT! I don’t remember ever having to struggle with any of our progress tests learning to be bonafide Eagle Scouts like tying knots and identifying arrowheads (should have seen Betty Lou’s husband’s collection of found arrowheads walking the farms and the brook. Wonder if it’s in the museum now?). The real kicker about Mr and Mrs Danser is that I don’t remember ever getting yelled at by them and back in those days, everyone’s parents had a beef with me for something,

When the Dansers moved to Naples for the winter, they kept in touch as lifelong friends did back in those post WWII days. They knew how important family was because they saw what could happen when it was all taken away by the Depression, the War, and when things go south on us.

As Mom usta say, Barbara was a gem.

I will always remember her as a very kind, soft spoken person. A sharp witted, confident woman who was very dedicated to her family & community. Someone whom I always looked up to & admired, especially her quiet strength. I will never forget her. May she rest in peace. My heartfelt condolences to all her family & friends. May God Bless you & hold you in his arms during this time of sorrow.
