Burial for Barbara Pardue

Barbara Ruth Pardue passed on Friday, September 28, 2018 due complications with her heart. She left behind many friends and family, but most importantly her 3 children who miss her terribly David, Ragina, and Grace. Anyone who encountered Barbara had nothing but wonderful things to say about her, she didn't have much but would give you the shirt off her back if you needed it. She was easy going and always made the best out of life. She helped many people, including caring for her Mother Anita after her cancer diagnosis as well as helped care for her Sister Evelyn before her passing. She had a good heart, and looked out for people when she could.

The news of her heart being in such poor health (prior to her passing) was shocking and extremely unexpected. She unfortunately was not a candidate for surgery which gave family and friends limited remaining time with her here on earth. She was blessed with almost 3 1/2 weeks of life, after the devastating news.

Arrangements and finances were not in order for her burial. The burden of these arrangements have now solely been left to her eldest daughter, Ragina. Time is crucial as the funeral home has given her a deadline for needing full payment for the burial. Barbara's last wishes were to be buried and not cremated due to her beliefs. Ragina has arrange for a pleasant but extremely modest funeral. She is desperately hoping to lay her Mother to rest while honoring her final wishes but is falling short on the finances 

I was given permission from Grace (Barbara's youngest daughter) to make this gofundme account. She is out of work and unable to assist financially. Their oldest brother David was still in the care of his mother prior to her passing due to medical and intellectual conditions that prevent him from working, therefore unable to assist financially. 

If you feel it in your heart to be a blessing to Barbara and her family we would all be extremely grateful for your generosity. Any and all money collected will go to the final celebration of a wonderful person. Please keep her friends and family in your prayers, God bless.
