She was survived by her four children, Claude, Ralph, and Katherine Barkman, and Mrs. Christian Christensen. Her step-children were Uriss, Walter, and Mabel Barkman, and Mrs. C. Sharp Trimmer. She was interred in Pleasant Hill Cemetery.
In 1956, the Chester Borough Council introduced a new salary guide: road supervisor Walter Barkman saw a raise of $592 to $3900, assessor Leslie Apgar a $200 raise to $600, and Borough clerk Eleanor Thompson a $50 raise to $550. Temporary Borough employees and police officers would see $1.75 per hour. Source: The Mendham-Chester Tribune.
