Our loss was Heaven’s gain when Barbara passed on November 4th, 2021. She was born in Phoenix, AZ on September 23, 1959 to Virgil F. and Betty J. Caldwell. Barbara was preceded in death by her mother Betty, her father Virgil, her son Lee Allen, her son Joshua. She is survived by her husband Earl, daughter Melissa, son-in-law Robby, grandson Clinton, granddaughter Emma, two sisters, three brothers, and far too many nieces, nephews, and other close relatives and friends to count.
Barbara was passionate about her family and loved to garden. She also loved red roses. Traveling with her daughter Melissa and granddaughter Emma was one of her favorites. Barbara enjoyed crocheting, sewing, cooking, & walking on the beach. She loved to spend her time drinking her morning coffee with Earl on their front porch. Barbara loved spending quality time with her friends and family by teaching them new things.
Barbara was the most generous and loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend to so many. It is seemingly impossible to put into words the love that radiated from Barbara’s life. Barbara was a sophisticated woman who, matter of factly, sprinkled fun wherever she went. She gave abundantly to those around her and set a wonderful example for how each of us should live our lives.
In remembrance of Barbara, graveside services will be held with family & close friends on Tuesday, November 23, 2021 at 2:00 PM at Memory Gardens in the midst of the fall season which happened to be Barbara’s absolute favorite. Due to the high cases of Covid in the area, there will not be a memorial service held after the graveside service. Barbara will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
