By Zoila Palma González: Beloved art teacher, Barbara Daniela Helbling Flowers has passed away. Barbara taught art at Sacred Heart College for many years and inspired many students with her art classes during her tenure.

Barbara immigrated to Belize as a young adult and made the Jewel her permanent home after marrying Carlton Flowers. The couple resided in Georgeville and owned a farm on Mountain Pine Ridge Road.

“In the 31 years I’ve had you, I could never have asked for a better mother!! Your love keeps me going and changes so many lives around the world. Your mother is the best, your mother is mean, she is cool… All the words people would say to me and I would already know them because she is my mother and she enjoyed every second on this earth,” her son Benji Flowers said on social media.

Barbara was also the smiling face of the Back to my Roots gift shop on Burns Avenue in San Ignacio which promoted amazing Belizean souvenirs. She was highly regarded for her calm, soothing, friendly and encouraging personality.

Former student Giselle O’Brien said: “I remember how she made me feel: she inspired confidence, encouraged spontaneity and always, ALWAYS, a big smile.”

Many former students and friends have taken to Facebook to express their condolences to his family and friends.
