Obituary for Barbara B. Schlink

Barbara B. Schlink, 89, of Peoria, passed away on Wednesday, August 3, 2022 at Christian Buehler Home.

Barb was born on October 19, 1932, in Peoria, a daughter of Franklin and Frances (Cullen) Barthell. She married David J. Schlink on June 6, 1953 at St. Mark’s Catholic Church in Peoria. He preceded her in death on Tuesday, September 21, 2010 in Chillicothe, IL. She is also preceded in death by her parents, brother, Frank, sisters, Paula and Virginia, granddaughters Lauren Davis Schlink and Sara Wickert, and son-in-law Ken Wickert.

Barb is survived by her children, Carol Wickert of Peoria, Cathy (Ed) Habecker of Peoria, Mary Senefeld of Fisher, IN, Michael (Kimberly) Schlink of Morrisville, NC, Daniel (Maureen) Schlink of Peoria, and Tom (Kris) Schlink of Peoria; 16 grandchildren, and 16 great grandchildren (plus two on the way), brother Dan (Brenda) Barthell of Arlington, VA and step-brother Tom (Cheryl) Bower of Peoria.

Barb and Dave met while attending Spalding and Academy of Our Lady. Both attended Bradley University and married after Dave’s graduation. They enjoyed traveling extensively through Europe and Asia, even though Door County, Wisconsin, was Barb’s favorite place to visit.

Barb was a graceful swimmer and continued swimming throughout most of her life. Reading was her real passion (and perhaps politics.)

Barb was a member of St. Philomena Catholic Church and the Catholic faith was an important part of Barb’s life. Barb will be remembered as a very sweet, kind, and giving woman, who will be greatly missed.

Visitation will be from 5 PM – 7 PM on Friday, August 12, 2022 at Wright & Salmon Mortuary with a Recitation of the Rosary at 7 PM. Funeral Mass will be at 10:00 AM on Saturday, August 13, 2022 at St. Philomena Catholic Church, with a half hour prior visitation. Fr. David Richardson will officiate and burial will follow at St. Mary’s Cemetery in West Peoria.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to St. Augustine Manor, 1301 NE Glendale Ave, Peoria, IL 61603.
