Barbara Jo “BJ” Buck

Barbara Jo “BJ” Buck died in the early morning of March 16, 2009. Born in Philadelphia, PA , she grew up in Silver Springs, MD. An avid polo player and horsewoman, she balanced her passion for horses with her job as a flight attendant. She worked for Northwest Airlines for over 38 years, retiring in 2006. BJ moved to Ocala in 1989, where she thrived in the horse business. Prior to that, she lived, laughed and loved in Aspen, CO and Waitsfield, VT. She always lived life to the fullest and touched many lives with her spirit. She loved dogs and owned many over her lifetime, each a cherished and loving companion.

BJ is survived by her best friend Greg Baier and brother Barry Buck of Davidsonville, MD. She is preceded in death by her parents, Catherine and Allan Buck.

A memorial celebration of her life will be held at her beloved “Froggy Bottom Farm” at 9735 NW 63rd Street in Ocala from 2-4 PM on Saturday, March 28, 2009. The service, conducted by Reverend Robert Greaves, will begin at 2:30 PM.
