Barbara Louise Roberts, 69, died January 24, 2023. Barbara was born May 7, 1953 to Jack and Rachel Woodyard. She was a resident of Jackson where she was a member of Walker Springs Road Baptist Church. Barbara was known for her feisty nature and firecracker personality. A bit of a night owl, she loved listening to music and dancing the night away. Barbara was never the type to meet a stranger; if she ever had a chance to sit down with you she would pepper you with questions in an effort to get to know her new friend better. She enjoyed socializing: eating out, shopping and visiting loved ones and friends, both old and new. She was a precise lady who like things just so; everything had a place and if you neglected to put something back properly she would let you know the next time you spoke with her. Barbara also enjoyed watching her favorite shows including The Price Is Right and The Big Bang Theory.
Barbara is survived by her daughter, Diane Powell, grandchildren, Dillon Croom and Jennifer Humphrey; great grandchildren, Caleb Croom, Canaan Croom, Emillia Humphrey, Griffin Humphrey and Ronin Humphrey; siblings, Raymond Woodyard, John Woodyard, Steve Woodyard and Mary Lee Smith as well as numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and devoted friends.
She is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Steven Roberts; siblings, Rudolph Woodyard, George Woodyard, Jr., and Benny Woodyard.
