Barbara Jean Pargin



Barbara Jean Pargin died on Wednesday October 18 in Sandy, Utah. She was a resident of Albuquerque from 1972-2012.

Jean was born in Ignacio, Colorado on February 4, 1935 to Chuck and Lottie Dannels. She was the only child to the couple and the apple of her dad's eye.

She was raised in Durango Colorado and graduated from Durango high school and married Robert "Bob" Pargin, a pilot in the Air Force in 1953. They had two children Debra Kay and Robert "Boo" Pargin. After over 30 years of marriage Bob and Jean divorced. She is preceded in death by both Bob and Boo. Her daughter-in-law Karen and two grandchildren Ben and Ava live in Pagosa Springs Colorado.

Also her nephew Dan Pargin and wife Tracy live in Albuquerque, NM.

Jean had great wit and humor and a lovely personality. She was a loving and caring mother and a doting "Gamma". Jean enjoyed music, golfing, and playing cards but the love of her life was always her family. She is dearly missed.
