She was a member of First United Methodist Church of La Marque and loved to
volunteer at Dickens on the Strand, Galveston Historical Society Home Tour and the MS 150.
Barbara was a very special woman who raised her four children, three grandchildren and presently a great-grandson. She worked as a nurse at St. Mary's, Danforth and Mainland Center Hospital until her retirement. She was also a H.O.S.T.S. reading mentor at Santa Fe ISD until last year.
She lived life fully and wouldn't let two amputated legs slow her down. She was a very loving, caring and fun loving person who loved to play jokes.
Her family was the center of her life and realizing she didn't have much time, she was making baby blankets and quilts for all her future great-grandchildren, as she had made for all her grand and great-grandchildren.
Barbara (Moma, Bamma) is greatly loved and missed by her family and friends.
