My only connection to the Nielsen family is Barbara’s son Keith whom I knew best back when he and my daughter were both in the musical theater programs at Hamilton High School West. I would like to think that Barbara’s love of going to the theater was passed along to Keith and that her enjoyment of theater will be long lived through him. Keith always spoke of his Mom and his entire family with great affection. My condolences at this sad time.
