Barbara was known to many has either "Mom" or "Granny" she didn't care if you were related or not, she just let everyone call her that. She loved to bake and cook in her younger years. Barbara enjoyed listening to christian music. She had a strong faith and a passion for God. She was a great mother and grandmother. She loved spending time with her children, grandchildren and the "dogs". Barbara was such a strong independent woman. She lived her life honestly and full of integrity and passed those values to each person she came across, she is an example that many should look up to and take notes. She didn't have any complaints ever and she always keep pushing on all the way to the end. Barbara is going to be greatly missed by all.
