There are few joys which outshine the birth of a child. On January 12, 1921, Andrew and Katie Denson Williams of Pittsview, Alabama, welcomed their fifth of ten children, Carrie Mae into a loving family. It was not an unusual day, but within that room, God delivered another token of His love.

Although she was not the eldest daughter, her family affectionately called her ‘Sister” because she proved to be dependable and helpful to her parents and siblings.

She enjoyed attending school and learning new things which she incorporated into her daily life.

She accepted Christ at a young age and joined the Jerusalem Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama.

She met and married the late Corporal William A. Barber while he was stationed at Gunter Field Military Base in Alabama. Shortly after their marriage they moved to his home in Great Crossing, a small hamlet community in Scott County, Kentucky. There, she joined, by letter, the Great Crossing Missionary Baptist Church. She was a faithful member who formed and served on the Usher Board for many years, sang in the choir, served on the Missionary Board, the Baptism Committee, Welcome Committee and the Lord’s Supper Committee. She also served as a Sunday School Teacher and BTU President. She loved the study of God’s Word and felt it was important to be on time for all services.

She was a talented seamstress and enjoyed participating in the Scott County Homemakers and 4-H Clubs, where she helped many learn to sew. She enjoyed drawing, quilting, crocheting, ceramics and working word search puzzles.

In 1998, she joined the First Baptist Church Bracktown, Lexington, KY. She was an encourager to others and stood firm on her faith in the Lord. She continued to be faithful in her attendance in Sunday School and church services as long as she was able to. She was always eager to know what was going on in the life of the church. She loved her Pastor, his family and her church family.

She was the last member of her immediate family in Alabama to be called home by the Lord. Even though physically she is gone, she will always be cherished by her son, Eddie G. Barber, Sr. and his wife Barbara, Lexington, KY, her three daughters, Deboria Gore and her husband Olanda, Georgetown, KY, Linda Raglin and her husband Charles, and Ruby Wess, Lexington, KY. Her Grandchildren, Eddie G. Barber, Jr., William Wallace Barber and his wife Lashawn, Timothy Robinson and his wife Gina, Tara Babb and her husband Theo, Anthony Raglin and his wife Kisha, Kevin Raglin and his wife Felicia, Angela Lewis and her husband Mark, Bryan Wess and Jason Wess. Her memory will also be cherished by her great-great grandchildren.

She enjoyed spending time with her family and kept them in her prayers. She had many other relatives and friends, young and old, near and far – she loved them all.

Funeral services will be 1 PM Tuesday, March 26 at First Baptist Church Bracktown. Burial will follow at Crestlawn Memorial Gardens. Casket bearers will be Eddie G. Barber, Jr, Kevin A. Raglin, Timothy E. Robinson, William Wallace Barber, Jason K. Wess and Bryan R. Wess. Honorary bearers will be Mark D. Lewis, Anthony D. Raglin, James Todd Barber, Willie Panell, Theo Babb, Jr, Gene C. Barber, Gregory Daniel and Anthony Daniel. Visitation will be 11 AM till service time Tuesday at the church. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to First Baptist Church Bracktown, 3016 Bracktown Lane, Lexington KY 40511.
