Barbara Ann Ferris Obituary
Barbara Ann Smith Ferris, the daughter of Frederick Harold Smith and Faye Rice Smith, was born on June 26, 1931, in Kansas City, Missouri. After 82 wonderful years, Barbara Ann passed away peacefully at home on March 26, 2014, in La Jolla, California.
After attending the Barstow School for Girls in Kansas City, Barbara Ann graduated from Pine Manor College and The University of Arizona as a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta Sorority.
Barbara Ann moved to La Jolla where she had spent many fun summers growing up, and where she married, raised her family, and became an integral part of the community, to include serving as the 1975 Jewel Ball Chairman as a member of Las Patronas.
Barbara Ann maintained very strong relationships with the many friends she made over the years. When not travelling together, they could often be found playing Rummikub on the beach and laughing on the tennis courts. Barbara Ann will be remembered as a true original who never met a stranger, and turned any occasion into a celebration.
Barbara Ann is survived by two children from her marriage to Herbert Henry Ferris Jr., Jeffere Harold of Coronado and Barbara Ann of Austin, Texas. They, their spouses, Sara and Richard, and Barbara Ann's grandchildren, Katherine, Abigail and Winston, will miss her very much, and hope to carry on her zest for life.
