Barbara was active in Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church and headed up the silent auction. Having a heart of gold, she was a wonderful server, loved animals, especially horses, enjoyed gardening, painting and celebrating life. Most of all, Barbara was a wonderful wife and mother who will be missed by all who knew her.
She was preceded in death by her parents.
Barbara is survived by her husband of 45 years, Frank Thomas of the home; her children, Clayton Thomas of Sacramento, California, Cindy Bailey and husband Gregg of Orland, California; a sister-in-law, Sandra Miller of Kansas City, Kansas; her other family members, Lee and Trudy Erb of Hollister, Missouri; and her four-legged companions, Getty and Filthy.
A celebration of life will be held at 2:00 p.m. Sunday, February 21, 2016, at Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church in Branson, Missouri, with Father Rick L. Jones officiating. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in memory of Barbara may be made to Mercy Hospice.
