Valued contributor to Pacific Masters

Barbara Thomas loved working with Pacific Masters. She served on the USMS Finance Committee and was the vice president of administration for Pacific Masters. In 2006 she was also the treasurer of the XI FINA World Masters Championships. She was instrumental in making the relay day at the championships a success. She spent many hours trying to guess how many swimmers would swim and which events they would swim.

Barbara worked at Crosslink Capital, from 2000 to 2007, and recently started a new job at Saints VC. She enjoyed life to the fullest, especially when she played golf, and was thrilled to get an eagle in front of her son. She also enjoyed her referee “calls” with Mustang soccer in Danville, and her “extra” time with the East Bay Astronomical Society.

Barbara died after a short battle with lung cancer. She is survived by her husband, William, a son, her mother, a brother and sister.
