Barbara Bloomfield, 72, of Belvidere, Illinois, passed away November 3, 2023, at home surrounded by family and friends. She was born June 29, 1951, in Peoria, Illinois, the daughter of the late Evelyn and Buddie Weaks. She is the 3rd child of 4 siblings.
Barb has been a police officer, security guard, and finally a rural postal carrier prior to retiring. She was an avid gardener and plant enthusiast. She loved to be in the kitchen, either canning, baking, or cooking a home-cooked meal for family and friends. She loved to travel. She was full of energy and always on the go and ready for the next adventure. Most of all, she loved her family. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.
Barbara is survived by her loving husband of 40 years Kenneth Bloomfield, one sister Marilyn Weaks, three children: Stephanie Bleshoy, Curt (Carrie) Scheeler, Nerea Gutierrez, four Stepchildren: Christine (Tim) Cooper, Dane (Lori) Bloomfield, Lynn Bloomfield, and Cheryl (Del) Williams, seventeen grandchildren: Gavin (Lexi) Bleshoy, Joshua Bleshoy, Wyatt Bleshoy, Aiden Bleshoy, Matthew (Courtney) Newton, Amanda Newton, Curt Scheeler, Madison Scheeler, Dakota (Allison) Bloomfield, Reed Kaczar, Jordan Carlson, Jericha Carlson, Jacob Cooper, Jessica Cooper, Melody Olson, Michael Williams, Jordan Williams, twelve great-grandchildren, and a very special friend of 40 years Amanda Werner.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Evelyn Burdick & Buddie Weaks, and two sisters, Judy (Steve) Andrychuck, Sandy (Eddie) Wood.
A celebration of Barbara’s life will be on July 6, 2024. Details to come.
