Barbara was a Christian by faith; as well as, a loving, caring, funny, hard-working, strong woman who you could always count on. She retired as a General Manager after 40-plus years at Angelo’s Steak Pit. She considered many people there to be family. She then made her home in Copperhill (Ducktown), Tennessee with lifelong friend Helen Weaver, fulfilling a dream of living in the Smokey Mountains. A daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend to many. She was an amazing woman who will be greatly missed by all.

In honoring her wishes, there will be no public services. But she will be laid to rest next to her husband in Greenwood Cemetery, Panama City FL.
