Your family has my deepest sympathy.....I knew the family years ago when they had Sugar Interests in Uncle Harry Vaughn was President of United States Sugar Corporation in Florida and they too had Mills in Cuba before 1961....we met Barbara and her sister Virginia back then....later as an adult I met them again through Iberia Little theatre..... recently I would talk to Barbara eating lunch at Victor's Cafeteria ....I reminded her she was a local star.....after we saw her on Public Broadcasting Company (PBS) when they aired a special on persons who traveled on the famous Orient Express that luxury train from Paris to Istanbul.....the show walked through the luxury compartments interviewing some....when they entered her compartment.....there was Barbara Kyle looking all relaxed and poised telling about her travels......she was just so interesting......I know she will be missed.......

“Lady B”and I met at a Little Theater play rehearsal in 1961 immediately hitting it off. Her wit and southern charm endeared me to her since. We even spent the last few years together laughing and reminiscing at an assisted living facility. I”ll miss you Barbara. Love you, Al

Uncle Fred’s children always called her “Auntie B”, so that’s what I called her, too. She was just as wonderful to me when I was around. My husband & I are close to our 42nd wedding anniversary. At this time of year I always remember how thoughtful, generous “Auntie B” was to us. She provided beautiful white camilias for our wedding. I can still see them all laid out in a box. She was a jewel.
Several years ago I saw her in New Iberia. It looked like she was coming back from lunch with some friends. As I pulled my car beside them, I rolled down the window & called out, “Auntie B. !”. I told her who I was (maiden name), & she waved & asked about my mama. Life is good here, in The South.
This Southern Lady shall be missed. I’m grateful to have known her. May God bless her for her eternity. I pray for all her family & friends who shall miss her.

You probably don't remember me.
I was Marietta Murray and Theda Murray's great niece.
When we would visit Aunt Teedee and Peg in New Iberia sometimes we would go to Miss Bessie's.
And, of course, Miss Barbara would be there.
Remember the fun on Easter hunting Easter Eggs.
When I was older, I appreciated the beautiful camellias in front.
Kinder, lovelier days.
Miss Barbara always had wonderful stories to tell.
She was writing a book, but said it would only be published posthumously.
Will we have her wonderful wit to look forward to in a book?
I hope so - I would love to read it.
I know you all have wonderful memories of her, too
