Barbara Jo Grimes age 66, passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones on July 19,2020 at Cox South Hospital in Springfield Missouri. Services will be private.
Barbara was born January 3, 1954 in Davidson County, Mitchell South Dakota to Patricia Jane Austin, and Harry William Clarke. Barb attended and graduated from Mount Tacoma High School in Tacoma, Washington in 1972.
She was a true Christian woman. So kind, caring and compassionate. She never was one to judge another human being. Almost every person she met became a good friend. You couldn’t help but like Barb, she had such a bubbly personality, and an amazing laugh. She attended a church in Blue Eye with her husband called Closer Walk.
Barb enjoyed many things in life such as being a world traveler, sewing her beautiful artworks, riding motorcycles, trying new foods and watching her favorite TV shows. She also adored all animals no matter the size, but her favorites were dogs and elephants. Most of all, she enjoyed being a mother to her three children.
Barbara is survived by her husband, Guy Hughes; two sons, Andrew Grimes, Jeremy Grimes and wife, Jodi Grimes and their two sons Kaiden and Dylan Grimes; one daughter, Lori Bava and husband, Anthony Bava and their son Antonio.
Cremation is under the direction of the Kissee-Schofield-Eakins Funeral Home, Forsyth, MO.
