Barbara Lynn Brown peacefully passed on the evening of December 6, 2020. After 20 years apart, she has reunited with her dearly departed husband, Stanley, and her heart is once again whole.
Barb was born on March 2, 1949 in Lansing, Michigan to R.D. and Jeanne Wallace. She was one of five children, raised in Lansing where she attended school, and met her late husband, Stan, whom she married November 9, 1968. Barb was a devoted wife, daughter, sister and mother always placing family’s needs before her own. She was an honest friend who could always be counted on to speak the hard truth when it was needed the most.
Barb was preceded in death by her mother, Jeanne; father, R.D.; stepfather, Earl Sharp; siblings, Jerry, Raymond, Danny, Sandy; and her dear husband, Stanley. She is survived by and forever will be remembered by her children, Tracy (Kevin) Puryear, Robert (Amanda), Stanley (Sheryl) and Andy; grandchildren, Sierra (Seth), Kristine, Kara, Brittanee, Kennedy, Lindsay, Mason, Tucker, Hailey, Joseph, Emily, Riann, Charlotte; and great-grandchildren, Hailey and Olivia. Friends closest to her truly know the gentle soul they have lost.
In honor of Barb’s most adamant final wishes there will be no funeral service. A private memorial will be held at later date.
