Barbara Ann Rice went home to her heavenly father on October 14, 2020. Barbara is survived by her loving husband of 62 years, Michael, as well as her loving children, son, Scott Leroy Rice and his wife, Jennifer and daughter, Lori Ann Rice. Also her loving grandchildren, Briana Patterson and husband, Adam, Caitie Jones and husband, Kit, Dontae Rice and Stefan Rice, and loving great grandchildren Riker Patterson and Creed Patterson.
Barbara loved to swim, travel, do crafts, spend time in her photo room reading, her home, but most of all her family.
Barbara will truly be missed by her family and friends. May she rest in God's peace.
We little knew that morning,
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
You did not go alone.
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.
You left us beautiful memories,
Your love is still our guide.
And though we cannot see you,
You are always by our side.
Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.
