Barbara “Barbi” Jean Dall was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, godmother and friend. She left this world surrounded by loved ones after a courageous battle with cancer on May 20, 2023 at age 74. Barbara was born to Leo and Jean Smoljan on March 27, 1949 in Reedley, California. She attended Orosi High School and Reedley Community College. Barbara met Steve, the love of her life, in 1973. Steve married his real-life Barbi Dall on May 5, 1973, and soon thereafter moved to Virginia. This was the first of a series of travels with their four children due to Steve’s military service, which included three tours in Germany. Barbara worked in many different positions throughout the years, most notably as the commander’s secretary for MEPS (Military Entrance Processing Station) in Sacramento, until her retirement in 2011. Barbara was a busy mom of 4, and while her children were young, spent time coaching cheer, soccer, and in theater performance. Barbara loved spending time in the kitchen, creating delicious meals for her family. She enjoyed a multitude of crafting projects, including crocheting, cross-stitching, and sewing. She especially enjoyed her morning cup of coffee, more so when she was having quiet moments with her family. Barbara is survived by her husband of 50 years, Stephen, her son Lee and daughter-in-law Sandra Dall of Howe, Oklahoma, daughter Jeanne and son-in-law Donnie Viloria of Lake Havasu City, Arizona, daughter Shelli and son-in-law Dan Lindenfeld of Citrus Heights, California, father-in-law Raymond Dall of Dinuba, California, grandchildren Lacie, Erika, Josh, Megan Morgan, A.J., Tony, Jared, Ethan, Madison, Makenzie and great-grandchildren Garrett, Natelee, Kenley, Mason, Addison, Enola, Lily, Jonathan, Olivia, and Taelynn, brother David of Clovis, California, sister Maria of Carson City, Nevada, and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents Leo and Jean, brother John, and son, Nathan. Services will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (, an organization Barbi felt strongly about.
