Mrs. Barham went to be with her Lord on December 9, 2015. Her loving family was in constant attendance at the end of her life and will miss her dearly.

A longtime resident of Morehouse Parish, Mrs. Barham was born June 21, 1929, in New Orleans, Louisiana. She is predeceased by her parents Hilda Morgan and Harold Heres and by her husband Henry Alfred Barham Jr., to whom she was married for thirty-nine years.

In addition to many other accomplishments, she received a Bachelor of Science degree in Home Economics from Louisiana State University and was a member of Chi Omega Sorority. She later graduated from Northeast Louisiana State College (now, University of Louisiana at Monroe) with a Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmacy and became the first female, registered pharmacist in Morehouse Parish. For many years, she and her husband owned and operated Barham's Drug, located on the Bastrop courthouse square.

She was elected to the Morehouse Parish School Board and served two terms. She was a devoted member of First United Methodist Church for over 60 years and enjoyed membership in the Coterie Study Club.

Mrs. Barham is survived by her sister Geraldine Heres Hightower of Homer, LA; her children, Pamela David Harris (Michael), Memphis, TN, Claire Barham Mayer (Scott), Baton Rouge, LA, Henry Alfred (Rusty) Barham III (Jeanne), Monroe, LA, and Emilia Barham McCue (Robert), Bastrop, LA; her grandchildren, Anna Claire Anderson, John Charles Anderson, Jr. (Melanie), Morgan McCue Sport (Dow), Emily Harris Halpern (Joel), Elizabeth Anderson Pendarvis (Zack), Lucy Harris Collins (Josh), Caroline Emilie-Jeanne Barham, and Henry Alfred Barham IV; and her great-grandchildren, James and Pierce Pendarvis, Jackson and Rowan Halpern, Liam Sport, and Annalise and Wren Anderson.
