For more than 62 years Barbara demonstrated her love and devotion for her husband and family.

Her leadership and service in numerous local churches for most of her 84 years on this earth will echo throughout eternity. Well done good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of the Lord.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Narvel Pearson, Sr. and Rena Dell Watkins Pearson; and her brothers, Winston Narvel Pearson, Jr. and Carl Wayne Pearson.
