Many will remember Barbara teaching them art lessons while she was teaching senior citizen classes through Cape Fear Community College for 19 years.

Barbara touched countless lives, near and far, with her smile, quick wit, positive attitude and wonderful personality. She was original from the start, never wavering from being that most authentic lady. Having a God-given talent, Barbara excelled in all mediums of art: oils, acrylics and watercolors. Above all else, she was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. Barbara’s giving spirit and compassion knew no bounds. Barbara was a gift to this world and was loved by so many, especially her beloved family.

The family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, June 10, at Quinn-McGowen Funeral Home, Burgaw.
