Barbara has been a ubiquitous presence at St. Peter her entire life beginning with her baptism. A truly southern lady with a passion for justice, Barbara’s energy, combined with her delightful personality and in-depth organizational skills, have been invaluable assets to all of us at St Peter. As a leader for 20+ years in the Social Justice Committee, Barbara has provided a consistent platform for parishioners to explore and pursue social justice and racial equity issues with unfailing strength and wisdom. As a greeter/usher with the most engaging smile, Barbara has made all who enter the doors of St. Peter feel most welcome.
But Barbara is so much more than her many “works.” Her indomitable and indefatigable spirit and her endearingly kind and considerate heart make her an inspirational leader as well as a generous, supportive friend. Her dedication to children, to social justice and, of course, to the Tar Heels, along with her hearty laugh compliment her determination to build community. She is always eager to help and share her experiences and knowledge with everyone. Her positive approach when facing differences of opinion or apparent challenges make her a role model for so many. A joy to be around, she is a faithful dog walker, as well as an avid bridge player (Master points!). Barbara, with an incredible strength of character, is the epitome of what it means to live a Christian life.
In her typically humble way, Barbara asked that this tribute be brief. Barbara is relocating to Chapel Hill to live with her brother. We will miss her, but she is keeping her house here in Charlotte so she will be back to visit us! We hope to see her charming smile soon.
