Barbara Louise Streed
Barbara Louise (Peel) Streed, age 77, died peacefully in her sleep on March 23, 2020 in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. Barb was born on October 28, 1942 in Minneapolis to Milton and Florence (Arlander) Peel. She grew up in St. Cloud, Minnesota and attended Bethel College in St. Paul, Minnesota, before returning to St. Cloud to obtain her college diploma. On June 21, 1968, she married the love of her life, Ramer Weld Streed. Ramer and Barb spent most of their married life living in North Mankato, Minnesota. Although uveitis deprived her of her vision for the majority of her life, she "saw" and blessed the world in many wonderful ways. Barb was a wonderful organist and singer, prided herself on an immaculate home and home cooking, and adored her wonderful grandchildren. More importantly, her love for her Savior led her to lead Bible studies for many years and was a prayer warrior, both for her family and countless church families and strangers.
Barb is survived by her husband, Ramer, of Chanhassen, her son Tim (Kristi) of Eden Prairie, three grandchildren, Griffin, Grace and Genevieve, all of Eden Prairie, and her younger brother Jonathan (Gretchen) Peel, of Maple Grove, Minnesota. She was preceded in death by her parents and her sister Marilyn (Peel) Benn.

Barbara was truly a special person. It's hard to lose a wife and a mother who was a great person. May God be with you and give you comfort like no one else can.

Barb was a real inspiration to us with her never ending positive attitude and thankfulness. She was such an excellent testimony of God's faithfulness and goodness to her. Truly an amazing woman.

I met Barb in Bible Study Fellowship. She was a very special woman whose direction in life was to serve the Lord. He said to her when she entered His mansion: Well done, my good and faithful servant.
