Barbara was born in Brooklyn, NY on September 30, 1950. She moved with her family to Oxford in 1959. She graduated from Oxford Academy in 1968 before meeting and marrying Bob in 1969. She and her family enjoyed exploring new places due to job transfers. Each day was an adventure and we hold many wonderful and special memories of Barbara.
Barbara was a loving mother, grandmother and sister that brightened our lives with her happy nature and giving spirit. She never met a stranger and was always willing to take the time to get to know others. She loved to craft and share her creations with family and friends. She was a hands-on grandmother who loved caring for her grandchildren. Barbara loved her dogs and did not hesitate to take in strays and quickly provide them with unconditional love. She enjoyed raising chickens but learned that chickens do not like wearing sweaters even on the coldest days in Texas.
While she will be missed by family and friends her memory will always be in our hearts and minds. God has gained a cherished angel.
