Barbara Lee Earle was born on February 12, 1935 in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. Born to Floyd and Olive Harding she was the fourth of seven children. Her family settled in Sacramento at a young age where she completed her education at Grant Union High School. She married William Francis Earle on July 7, 1953 shortly after he was honorably discharged from the United States Air Force. Together they raised two children William Jr. and Susan. Barbara loved beautiful things, especially flowers and was an avid collector of dolls. She loved to travel and she loved people. She spent her working years as a bookkeeper and grocery clerk where she loved visiting with her customers. She absolutely adored babies and after doting on children and grandchildren she was blessed to become a great grandmother and most recently a great great grandmother. Sadly she lost the love of her life after 44 years of marriage. She is also preceded in death by her sisters Violet, Irene and Lillian. She is survived by her loving children Bill (Heather) and Susan (Tina), three granddaughters Julie (Brett), Hollie (Brad) and Amie (Derek). She will be terribly missed by her sisters Elaine and Marge and her brother Robert. She also leaves behind eight great grandchildren, two great great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
She entered into rest on November 19, 2023 at her home in Ripon, CA. She will live on in our hearts.
A graveside service for Barbara will be held Thursday, November 30, 2023 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM at Mount Vernon Memorial Park, 8201 Greenback Ln, Fair Oaks, CA 95628.
