The intelligent, feisty, innovative, compassionate and dedicated Barbara Lapp passed away peacefully on June 12, 2015. She was a beloved pioneer of quality early child care & education in Shasta County, touching the lives of countless children and families while raising 6 of her own children. She was involved with establishing the Redding Cooperative Preschool and spent all her years immersed in the early childhood community. She offered a strong voice of wisdom to First 5 Shasta 0-to-5 decisions as a long-time Commissioner and Evaluation Committee member. All our staff and Commission are missing this remarkable woman, leader, and visionary and offer our deepest sympathy to Barbara’s family. [Obituary available here]
