Barbara had a garden every year, in which she grew tomatoes among many other things. She loved her plants, at one time she had 90 inside the house. Yes, some did go outside for the summer.

Barbara also loved to do crafts; sewing, painting shells and artwork were among her favorites. She loved watching movies and cooking- especially new recipes. She enjoyed watching Nascar races and talking to her grandchildren on facetime. Barbara loved her cat, Lucifer, and her granddog, Daytona.

Barbara had a very caring heart and was always there to help out a friend. With a heart of gold, her door was always open. Barbara loved to tell jokes and hear them, she had a really good sense of humor.

Most of all, Barbara was the best mother, grandmother, sister and friend that anybody could ask for. She will be missed. May God bless her.

Love, your family and friends.
