Barbara Ann Davenport was born on Wednesday, November 12th, 1958 to the late Goldman and Edna Lou Woodard Davenport. She met the love of her life, Bobby Dallas, and the couple united in marriage on Friday, February 27th, 1981. Barbara was more than just a Mama to her two beautiful girls. She was a listening ear, a guiding hand, and a friend when they needed it most. Her favorite title quickly became “Nana” to her three grandbabies, which were spoiled beyond measure. Her family was her entire heart and soul. She was blessed with a green thumb and loved gardening and flowers. She enjoyed doing DIY projects, listening to music, and watching Food Network and the Home and Garden Channel. Barbara brought a great light to the world with her sweet soul. The trails of beautiful memories that she leaves behind will forever be remembered.
