Barb married Robert Mellin and they had a son, William. She worked for Isanti County as a financial worker for 32 years and 2 months, retiring on April 29, 2020.
Barb’s greatest love was the love she had for her family, especially her grandchildren. Being grandma to Bryce, Emma and Brady brought her immeasurable joy. Barb also enjoyed going to and having garage sales. When she wasn’t sharing her vast knowledge of True Crime and serial killers, she enjoyed organizing her garage and took great pride in decorating her home for the holidays.
Barb passed away unexpectedly October 27, 2021 at Cambridge Medical Center at the age of 68 years and 6 months. Besides her parents she was preceded in death by one brother, Tom Koep; and two sisters, Diane Koep and Joan Stark. She will be lovingly remembered by her son, Bill (Tammy) Mellin; sister, Judy (Gene) Johnson; grandchildren, Bryce, Emma and Brady; sister-in-law, Gerri Koep; brother-in-law, Tom (DeDe) Stark; and by many other nieces and nephews and their children. Barb’s kindness touched us all and her memory will never be forgotten.
