Barbara was a faithful member of Matoaca Baptist Church, if you knew her you already know Barbara was very special and was the friend everyone wanted.
She is survived by her sister and constant companion, Charlotte "Penny" Munson DeBoer and husband, Jack, of Dinwiddie; and with no children of her own, Barbara cherished and spoiled all of the nieces and nephews who came into the family and wanted them all to be listed in her obituary: Jay DeBoer, Dave DeBoer, Diane DeBoer Corrigan, Tami Armstrong Stout, Billy Ray Robertson, Joy Robertson Nunnally, Sue Smith Marsee, Jim Smith; and her loving in-laws, Rachel and Bobby Smith.
