Barbara was a long time member of the Sixth Street Church of Christ in Pine Bluff, Arkansas.
She loved animals and had a passion to help those in need especially those with mental illness. She worked as a Treatment Manager in the Rehabilitative Day Services Program at the Southeast Arkansas Behavioral Healthcare Center in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, for more than 41 years. In her free time, she also enjoyed working in her yard, attending church, and spending time with her family especially her daughter and her two favorite grand dogs Bird and Taylor.
