Barbara Ann Nelson (née King) of Pleasant Valley, Missouri, passed away peacefully on Friday, March 17, 2017, at the age of 81. Funeral Services will be at 2:00 pm, Wednesday, March 22, 2017 at White Chapel Funeral Home in Gladstone, MO. Visitation will start at 1:00 pm.

She is survived by her husband, William, to whom she was married for almost sixty years. She also leaves her three sons: Michael Nelson and wife Tess; Shawn Nelson and wife Sarah; and Shannon Nelson. She is survived by five grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Barbara was born in Boston, Massachusetts, on January 22, 1936, to Festus and Nora King. She was the oldest of six children. Barbara is preceded in death by her brother, James King. She is survived by her sister-in-law Patricia King; her sister Rosemary Mullally and husband Steve; her sister Margaret Fucile; her sister Josephine Beers and husband Steve; and her brother Patrick King and wife Sandra Moody. She leaves many nieces and nephews.

With a gleam in her eyes and her mischievous smile she was always wanting to do for others and not for herself.

She's off to a better place now, free from her problems and celebrating the reunion with her brother Jim and her Mom and Dad.

You will be forever missed.
