Ms. Carolyn Barber, beloved daughter of James and Bessie Barber was born September 13, 1950 in Ridgeway, South Carolina.  On Wednesday May 16, 2018 she passed on to her heavenly home. Carolyn was a proud graduate of James B. Dudley High School, Class of 1968. She worked for Speedline Corporation for 38 years where she developed many lifelong friendships. She enjoyed her work and during her tenure she received numerous awards and accolades.  All who worked with her loved her. Carolyn aka "Queen B" was an amazing woman.  All who had the opportunity to know her, loved her.  There are so many words to describe her personality such as kind hearted, loving, funny, bold and very direct and most of all loyal and committed. You could always depend on her to do exactly what she said she would.  Her greatest accomplishment in life was her only son, Timothy, he was her pride and joy.  She loved him more than she loved life itself.  She affectionately referred to him as "Harpo" and he called her "Ms. Celie". She leaves to cherish her life, devoted son: Timothy J. Barber (Debbie); two brothers: Willie J. Barber and Tony B. Barber; three sisters: Gloria Cobb (Tony), Angela Gooding (Milton), and Leslie Jenkins (Dennis); three grandchildren: Shanee Reaves Barber, Lauren Oakley and Timothy Jaxson Barber; seven great grandchildren: London, Angel, Noah (Shanee) and Tahj, Malaya, Auri, and Kaynan (Lauren); and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. While we will miss her dearly she is now in her final resting place, so we rejoice in knowing that she is at peace at last.

A service honoring her life will held Monday, May 21, 2018 at Love & Faith Christian Fellowship; 4344 Blackberry Rd. Greensboro, NC.  The visitation will begin at 11 am and the service will follow at 11:30 am.  The interment will take place following the service at Forest Lawn Cemetery; 3901 Forest Lawn Dr. Greensboro, NC.

    One of life’s greatest tragedies have greatly impacted your lives with pain and sadness and for that reason my deepest sympathies are with your family. Moreover, our Heavenly Father Jehovah also feels your hurt and he sent his son Jesus who gave his life in order that Carolyn could have the resurrection hope. To confirm this wonderful promise god had it recorded. Acts 24:15 states, “there is going to be are a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous”. It will be at that time god that will remember every detail about Carolyn and bring her back. So, may the god of all comfort Jehovah give your family the utmost comfort and strength at this most difficult time. (for more info go to

    Dear Family, I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one. My sincere condolences to you. May you think of the many beautiful memories that you shared with Carolyn, and cherish those precious moments. May the God of all comfort caress your heart with his living promise to one day reunite you together again in the future paradise mentioned at Revelation 21: 4,5. Our Dear Heavenly Father Jehovah (Psalms 83:18 )knows the many tears you cry and he will sustain you if you let him. I was thinking of you and hoping that you can find comfort during this difficult time.

    To the families and loved ones of Ms. Barber, who we know will be dearly missed. Almighty God promised at Revelation 21:4 that he will wipe away all our tears. And death, pain, and sorrow will be no more. So, you can take great comfort in drawing close to God in prayer. And he will help sustain and support your families to endure. During these difficult times and in the months to follow. My deepest condolences to all your loved ones.

    I am truly sorry for your loss, the Bible shows a real hope of being reunited with your dear love one. John 5:28,29 states the hour is coming when all those in the memorial tombs will hear Jesus voice and come out to a resurrection. It is comforting to know that Jesus is certainly capable of restoring life to someone who has died. I hope this thought brings comfort to your family during this difficult time.

    Accept our heartfelt sympathy in your recent loss. May you find strength and comfort from the words of Nahum 1:7 Which reads: “Jehovah is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him.” Yes, our loving God is there for us if we allow him to help (1 John 5:14). He didn't intend for us to grow old and die. He thus has made the SURE promise of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55;11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your loved ones? What a joy it will bring all of us! You can go online to JW.ORG and find out more about this resurrection.
