Remembering Barb Jelinek

On March 1st, a longtime client and dear friend to Salon Khouri passed away at just 62 years young after a courageous battle with cancer.

Barb had the most wonderful and magnetic personality — her sweet smile immediately drew you in. Barb was an amazing ‘Gammie’ to her grandchildren and, if you met her children and husband, you would instantly know what an incredible mother and wife she was as well. Barb was extremely athletic and could probably out-run and out-cycle most twenty year olds!

Barb had previously battled breast cancer and won that fight. When we were told she was diagnosed with cancer again, we were simply devastated. Her cancer this fight started in the kidneys and quickly spread throughout her body. Barb fought with every ounce of her might, which, if you knew Barb, was tremendous might. She will be missed greatly by us, her tremendous network of friends, her family, and husband of thirty eight loving years.

We invite you to leave a few words of kindness for her family and we will be sure to share it with Steven and their children.

In memory of Barb, we are donating $1 from every haircut this March to the Georgetown-Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center Kidney Cancer Research Fund.
