Obituary

Barbara Ann grew up listening to the sweet sounds of beautiful songs from birds nestled in tall lush green trees on her family farm in Mebane North Carolina.  While strolling to the family pond to go fishing, she could feel a warm breeze moving through her long, beautiful hair cascading down her back.  Barbara Ann enjoyed nature walks in the countryside, away from the city’s noise.  Her loving father Herbert Green Morrow taught her how to fish, plant vegetable gardens and flower gardens, and harvest fruit and vegetables.  These life lessons helped Barbara Ann learn how to use all the available resources from their farm to help support her family, as well as earn money.

The Morrow family enjoyed spending family time at the table discussing their day.  Freshly cut flowers from their flower garden were placed on the kitchen table.  Everyone could smell the aroma of a Southern Style Breakfast bacon, ham, eggs, and newly sliced tomatoes, all of which came from the family farm.  Growing up in this warm, loving environment, Barbara Ann learned to master one of her many skills.  With the loving hands of her mother, Viola Bowden Morrow taught her beautiful daughter how to prepare Pineapple Upside-Down Cake and her famous Banana Pudding.  At an early age Barbara Ann enjoyed reading, crafting, and going to Mary’s Grove Church with her family.  Barbara Ann loved praising God and enjoyed sharing her love for God with others. 

As an adult, Barbara Ann enjoyed Antiquing.  With the techniques she learned from her mother, she would use her sewing machine to create beautiful items.  For 30 years, Barbara Ann was Independent Contractor with Avon.  She also maintained a successful career in Manufacturing Industry, and most recently, she explored the technology field.  One of her most enjoyable and loving careers was a Home Care Giver for her loving parents.  Barbara Ann was allowed the opportunity to provide loving care to Mr. and Mrs. Morrow during their Golden Years.  They were able to discuss the growth of the family, the growth and progress of their granddaughters and their only grandson, and the Bible.  Barbara Ann loved her siblings, nieces, and her only nephew.  While talking with her, you could feel her love for her family.  She enjoyed sharing pictures of her family.  While sharing the photos, you would hear an amusing anecdote.  Not only did she love her family, but she also loved animals, especially furry friends.  One of her favorite dogs was Rudy.  She loved to talk to about Rudy.

Barbara Ann was a Lady who” Bloomed Where She Was Planted.”  She enjoyed and loved being the sister for her siblings, Herbert G Morrow Jr., George Morrow, Clarence Morrow, Harriet Lee Morrow, and Elsie Lavonne Morrow.  Barbara Ann and her sisters had a special bond and in her passing she has reunited with them.  She loved being Aunt Barbara Ann helping her only nephew Dr. Perry Lee Jeffries, nieces, and cousins.

Barbara is survived by her nephew Dr. Perry Lee Jeffries; nieces: Cynthia Bradshaw, Lisa Poteat, Marcia Morrow, Monica Morrow and Wanda Morrow; sister-in-law: Geneva Morrow along with a host of great-nieces, great-nephews, cousins and friends.
