  1. I spoke with Barbara not so long ago at the courthouse and we discussed each other’s health issues. She had not long been released from the hospital shortly before having to be readmitted and said her health was improving. She was a distant cousin through the Carter side of my family and was named after my late grandmother Barbara Reynolds Rackley. Our late mothers Mrs. Lillian Carter North and Mrs. Patricia Joyner Rackley were the best of friends, they enjoyed making doll’s together for the kids as a hobby. Barbara will be surely missed by all that knew her.

  2. Barbara was a special frend . She will be missed. Praying God will hold you close as only God can do, during this sad time. Know we care.

  3. My sincere condolences to the family of Ms Barbara. Ms Barbara and her husband were good friends of my parents. Anytime you saw her she always had a kind word and smile for you. My prayers are with her family, she will be missed and I am blessed to have known her in my life.

  4. Barbara and I were in the same senior class of 1960 of Waynesboro High School. My fondest remembers of her were her kindness and friendship we shared during our high school years. My deepest sympathy to her family.
