Bernice Barr

Bernice Evelyn Barr entered her heavenly home on Saturday, April 3, 2021 surrounded by her children and grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her loving husband Russell Barr in 2009, six brothers, and two sisters. She was born to William R. and Alice V. Hash on October 1, 1928 in Green Cove, VA, where she made her home and raised her family. While she worked full time at Timberland in Mountain City for many years, her life was dedicated to her family, for whom she showered with unconditional love and support. She was immensely proud of all her family and leaves behind nothing but precious memories. She was blessed with many wonderful friends and neighbors, and loved to share her delicious home cooked meals with all who entered her home. She was most happy when she was sitting on her front porch surrounded by her family with all of her babies playing in the yard. She loved her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and joyfully praised him right up until the moment she entered heaven’s gates. Our hearts will forever be broken without her, but we are so thankful for every precious moment that we were allowed to share with her and we take comfort in knowing that we will be reunited one sweet day. Those left to cherish her memories include her sons, Richard Barr (Marsha) of Greenback, TN, Bruce Barr (Annie) of Green Cove, VA, Bobby Barr of Green Cove, VA; daughters, Evelyn Wallace (Rick) of Green Cove VA, Judy Wilson (Glenn) of Meadowview, VA; nine grandchildren; seventeen great grandchildren; a special sister-in-law and friend, Mary Blevins; seven other special sisters-in-law; one brother-in-law; several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
