Barbara’s roots were in the Clendennin Community where she was born and raised. She has always been a member of Bethel Chapel, even when she moved away, she considered Clendennin Home.

Everyone thought “there was nothing like MawMaw’s chicken.” She is a 1971 graduate of Giles High School. She began her career as a clerk at a jewelry store earning $15.00 per week, boy was she so happy. Nothing made her happier than her children, Dave, Tim, and Aaron, and her grandchildren.
