Barbara R. Gorski, 73, of East New Market, Maryland passed away at her home on Thursday, April 30, 2020 with her loving family at her side.

Barb owned and operated Barb’s Beauty Salon for 15 years. After closing her salon, she and her husband Joe became interested in the restaurant business and also opened a carryout seafood business. Whatever Barb was involved in, she gave it 100%. She was a member of Reid’s Grove United Methodist Church.
She loved her home and took great pride in working in her yard to make it as beautiful as she could. Barb made sure her flowers and plants got that extra little attention. She was also a bird lover and her favorites were, cardinals, blue jays and the American Goldfinch.
