Barbara received her education in the Accomack County Public School system. She was a graduate of the Class of 1966 from Mary N. Smith High School. Barbara attended Norfolk State College and the Eastern Shore Community College, to pursue her passion, nursing. In 2006, she retired from her position as a Pharmacy Technician at Shore Memorial Hospital.
At an early age, Barbara dedicated her life to Christ. She was a lifelong member of Shiloh Baptist Church in Boston, Virginia. She loved to serve the Lord and did it willingly. Barbara was a member of the Gospel Choir, under the direction of the late Kenneth Parker, the Senior Choir, and Missionary Board, until her health failed.
Barbara stole the heart of Charlie E. White and they were united in holy matrimony on December 22, 1984. This union was blessed with two daughters. Barbara was a loving, caring, dedicated, and selfless wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She loved to spend time with her family, whether at home or traveling. She loved to read, shop, and cook; she was known for her famous yeast rolls. Even when her health failed, she continued to enjoy and be thankful for her life. Every time she returned from a doctor’s appointment or trip, she would say, “Thank the Lord I’m back home one more time.”
In addition to her parents, Barbara was preceded in death by her mother-in-law, Blanche White; sisters-in-law, Louise Jones and Alberta “Peggy” Cornelious; brother-in-law, James “Al” White; and son-in-law, Hosea M. Davis.
