Russell, Anne, Pam, Nicole, Clayton, Beth, and Michael - my heartfelt prayers go out to you and the whole family. Your wife/mom was a godsend for us working parents many years ago. I am truly sorry that I just heard about this a few hours ago at the ball field. Ann Bingler told me as Eddie and Travis coach the little league All-Stars together. Barbara is in a much better place now and no longer suffering. She will always be a cherished memory for us. She almost made it to her next birthday. Sending our love and prayers. Remember the good times that you had with her and all the good she did. Love, Donna (Lawhorne) Leavell and family.
Ann, Pam, Russell. We are thinking of you and offer our prayers for your peace. All the wonderful memories of Barbara will sustain you. I was not aware in time to be with you on Thursday or Friday. Love to all your family - Valda (Wray) and Bernard Martin.
Pam and Burt,
I'm very sorry to hear of your mother's death. You are in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless and watch over you during this difficult time. Darlene H.
Barbara was a God-send for our children.
She really kept a family atmosphere in her home for raising our 2 children.
Another of her attributes was her patience and schooling for young parents.
She was always calm and composed except for on particular day when our energetic toddler daughter climbed out of her playpen and taught her friend in the neighboring playpen that skill also. They were dancing on top of the radiator cover in the dining room when barbara discovered their escape.
I am so sorry for her passing but I am also grateful that she is no longer suffering.
To her family I wish to express my gratitude for sharing Barbara with us all those years.
Rest In Peace Me-Mah.
Mema, rest in peace. Your amazing life has brought with it a loving husband, children and many friends. You were an amazing teacher, caretaker, and story teller. I am thinking of all of the lessons Mema taught my brother Dan and I as children. As we stayed under Park Street's welcoming roof, she helped shape us into the positive people we are today. My prayers go out to Russell, Ann, Pam and all of her loving family. God Bless.
