BARBARA ANN GEORGE, a life-long resident of Berryville, Arkansas died in Bentonville on July 15, 2016 at the age of 87. Barbara was born November 3, 1928 in Berryville, Arkansas a daughter of Hugh Alexander and Georgia Gulia (Morris) Wall.

She graduated from Berryville High School with the class of 1946 and attended William Woods College. Barbara was dedicated to her family and was a loving wife, mother and homemaker. She was active in her women's clubs, which once were part of the social fabric of her town, and was an avid bridge player. Barbara had many friends throughout her life, and because she had outlived many, recently joked that mourners would have to be hired for her funeral. Her dry wit was a source of amusement to her children and their friends. She was an avid reader later in life and looked forward to the daily crossword. From her birth to her death, Barbara provided her family with love and affection and will be greatly missed by those who knew her.

She is survived by her son, David George and wife, Anne of Bentonville, Arkansas; daughter, Jerre George of Pine Bluff, Arkansas; grandson, Andrew George; sister-in-law, Alice George; niece, Cindy George; nephew, Paul Wayne George; grand-niece, Johnice Dominick and cousins, Lynn Hanna Paull and Tom C.
