Barbara was a special lady. Her love and devotion was evident every day. She worked at my family's grocery store, Drakes Grocery, and there was nothing she wouldn't do. She even reminded my dad every day to take his medicine. She made the best strawberry/fig preserves. Always with a smile always there for others. Rest in peace Barbara. You will be missed.

Barbara was a special friend when we first moved to Greensboro in1974. We were hunting for a house, I was pregnant with Tracy and Harry Drake and Barbara saved me from total despair and complete crazy. She was the other double room mother with me through thick and thin for years.
I will miss your good nature and sweetness . Rest well and I know you are at peace. My thoughts and prayers are for your family as well.
