Barbara treasured time spent with family, and enjoyed long car rides that included shopping on the way. She loved a good karaoke party with Country, Christian, or '80s music. All of her grandchildren, neighbors and friends knew her as "Oomama." She prayed faithfully for others and helped anyone who had a need. Barbara had a servant's heart and loved people. She regularly attended Evergreen Baptist Church. As a homemaker she found joy in cooking, loved to decorate for the holidays, and making her house a home. She was a cancer survivor who faced a lifetime of fears as the Lord renewed her strength moment by moment and made her strong and courageous. She will be greatly missed by her loyal and faithful companion, Daisy, the family dog.
