As a retired nurse, and retired special needs teacher, Barbara had a passion for life. She was a talented crafter who could make anything with her hands. Her door was always open to strays of the canine, feline, and human variety. She definitely left her mark on this world, and will, without question, be missed by many.
Barbara was preceded in death by her parents, her brother, and her youngest son, Christopher.
She is survived by:
Brother: Terry Porter, Sister: Debi Haynie, Sons: John Alston, Frank Alston, Jeff Alston, Chuck Windham,
Daughters: Tammy Chasteen, Wynde Brooks, Grandsons: Kilo, Josh, David, Frank, Granddaughters: Rachel, Nicole, Layla, Jessie, Amanda
And her 2 crazy dogs whom she dearly loved, Beethoven and Autumn.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to The Alzheimer's Association or United Cerebral Palsy.
