Patricia Ann Barbour


A devout & devoted Wife, Mother & Christian

Dear Rev. Barbour, Parky, Steve, Jeff & Families:

Knowing Mrs. Barbour was such an honor & privilege! ANY time the church doors were open, she was there, lending her voice, Biblical knowledge & keen insights into whatever was happening. I remember reading with interest her “Pat’s Corner” columns in the EUMC Circuit Rider newsletter–always a new twist on an issue or one of Rev. Barbour’s sermon topics. She was legendary, but in her own quiet, unassuming way.

Thank you for sharing your Wife & Mother with us. She was greatly loved & will be dearly missed. Our loss is Heaven’s gain.

With love,
-Charles E. “Chuck” Lambert
Member, Erlanger United Methodist Church
