Barbara Adler

December 1931 — February 2022

Barbara Adler, daughter of Martha (Leibovitz) Stone and Morris Stone, was born in 1931 in Clayton, Mo. She graduated University City High School where she was voted funniest girl in her class. She attended two years of business school at Miss Hickey’s School of Business where she learned all the skills of a successful private secretary.

She was set up on a blind date by her good friends where she met her husband of 70-plus years, Howard. A year later they married and had their daughter Diane. They were living in St. Louis but due to a job offer moved to Walnut Creek where they lived for 29-plus years, they also lived in Blackhawk in Danville, for 29 years. Subsequently, their two other daughters were born, Denise and Dayna.

They moved 10 years ago to Davis to be closer to their daughters.

While in her 30s Barbara attended Diablo Valley Junior College where she earned her associate degree. It took her seven years while she was being a wonderful mother to her three daughters, playing doubles tennis, winning many tournaments, dabbling in golf, being a Girl Scout leader, learning to knit on her knitting machine, making many personalized items, and singing in a local choir. She also very much enjoyed teaching physical education and home economics at Santa Maria private school in Orinda for a few years, being president of the Walnut Creek Civic Arts League and excelling at bridge games with Howard.

She is survived by her husband Howard; daughters Diane (Andy Monheit) of Davis, Denise Adler (Andy Jefts) of Penngrove and Dayna (Steve Sisack) of Galt; grandsons Adam Monheit (Kristi) of Austin, Texas, Evan Monheit of Los Angeles, Jason Sisack of Sacramento, and Shaun Sisack of Sacramento; great-grandchildren Milana Monheit and Ari Monheit of Austin; and brother Harold Stone (Jan) of Princeton, Mass. She is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, brother Jack Stone, and sisters Doris Goldman and Anita Reznikoff.

There will be a private service for the family. In lieu of flowers, the family wishes to thank the hospice organization YoloCares of Davis, where donations can be made, or to Bet Haverim in Davis, to the Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund, The Alzheimer’s Association or to a charity of your choice.
