Jane Barbee

February 9, 1961February 7, 2012

Jane Elizabeth Barbee of Carrollton passed away in her home on February 7, 2012.

Born in London, Ontario, Canada, on February 9, 1961, she came to Texas at the age of 3 with her parents. Jane grew up in Amarillo where she graduated from Tascosa High School. She was very active in extracurricular activities and excelled as the first chair flute player, head twirler, and band queen in her high school orchestra.

Following high school, Jane graduated with a bachelor’s degree from West Texas A&M University (formerly West Texas State University) in Canyon, TX. She subsequently worked as a computer programmer and information systems specialist for several companies in Texas. Jane married Brent Barbee, the love of her life, in Amarillo on July 11, 1981. After beginning married life in Amarillo, Jane and Brent lived in several other locations in Texas including Wichita Falls, Waco, and Tyler. They have resided in Carrollton since 1994. She fought her battle with cancer for over 20 months bravely, and never expressed any self-sympathy or shed one tear. A beloved and devoted mother and wife, she always had a smile and word of encouragement. She is survived by her husband, Brent Barbee of Carrollton, TX, daughters Christine Barbee and Courtney Barbee of Carrollton, and Brother Paul Emery of Plano, TX.

Visitation will be held from 5 pm to 9 pm (the family will be there from 6 to 8), Thursday, February 9, 2012 at Ted Dickey West Funeral Home. A memorial service will be held at 10:30am Friday, February 10, also at Ted Dickey West Funeral Home.

Dear Jane - it's been almost a year now since you suddenly left us, and I still miss you and our daily 'talks'. Not a day goes by that I don' think of you. We had such fun in facebook and our games together, talking of our kids, animals and husbands. You were so fun and down to earth and STRONG. You aways made me laugh and you never felt sorry for yourself with your illness - "It is what it is" you would say. You were a real trooper. You've certainly earned your wings, but way too soon. I know you are watching over your daughters and husband and also they miss you so much. I miss you. Always know you will be in my heart and forever in my prayers. (Your CW is doing well and continuing on). With love to you and your family - some day we will hopefully meet in Heaven. With love, Claudine Minasian

I was very sorry to hear of your loss. Jane was a special Facebook friend and Cafe World neighbor to me, and she was always there if I needed something. Her presence will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with Jane and her family. God bless you.

Dear Paul, Brent and all other family members,
Jane was my best friend in our early crazy days. She was sweet, cute, and a great person. I am sorry we drifted apart, but she will always have a place in my heart. My prayers go out to you and I loved her very much.

To The Barbee Family,
Through my sister, Brenda Holmes, I 'met' Jane through Facebook. I spoke with her only once, but sat with her countless hours playing Farmville and CafeWorld. The wonder of Social Media introduced me to a wonderful lady. Jane, in honour of knowing you these last two and half years, my home farm in Farmville will have a permanent block of White Lilies in your honour and my Cafe is developing a new Signature Dish -- The Barbee. Thanks, Jane, for letting me enjoy the pleasures of gaming with you and I'm sorry we didn't get to meet in Carrollton when Brenda finally came into town. Love to you and your family.

I met Jane and Brent in Waco through my sister Jackie Groat. She was a wonderful, funny and loving person. My prayers go out to Brent, Christine and Courtney to give you strength during this difficult time. She is in a much better place now and in no pain.

For those who asked me about posting her eulogy and would like to read it, e-mail me and I will send it to you. My e-mail is thank you all for your kind words and condolences. It provides my family with some bit of comfort knowing how loved she was.
