Barbara Christopher Bagwell Luedtke
June 21, 1950 – April 3, 2019
Barbara Christopher Bagwell Leudtke, born June 21, 1950, departed this life on April 3, 2019 with her spirit undimmed.
Barbara was born to Peggy (nee Keiffer) and Frank Christopher, both of whom preceded her in death. She was also predeceased by her second husband, Lyle Leudtke. She leaves behind her sons Kelsey (Jeanie) Bagwell of Mooringsport, Louisiana and Kevin Bagwell of Memphis, Tennessee. Also mourning her are her brother, Jimmy Ray (Hilda) Franks, her companion, Lonnie Beal, and their beloved dogs Lucy Lou and Little Man, as well as a lifetime’s worth of friends and family.
Barbara will be remembered for her effervescence. Her colorful clothing and breathless manner of speaking, as though her mind was moving too fast for her tongue to keep up, are indelible in the minds of all who knew her. A woman of strong emotions, she inspired strong emotions in others, but she loved the only way she knew how.
A memorial service will be held for Barbara at Centuries Memorial in Shreveport, Louisiana on Saturday, April 13, 2019. Visitation will begin at 12 pm, and services start at 2 pm.
