Barbara was born on October 7, 1950 in Roswell, New Mexico. She was 66 years old when she passed away on Thursday morning, August 3, 2017.

She was the oldest child of Opal Lee Knott and Harry K. Shorthouse. She is survived by two sisters, Rosemary S. McClure of Coppell, Texas, and Maryann Shorthouse of Abilene, Texas.

Raised in Abilene, Texas, Barbara moved to Coppell in 1985- where she later earned her Bachelor of Science degree in programming. One of her most cherished memories was working with the city of Irving.

Barbara’s favorite season was Fall and her favorite month was October. She loved Rock & Roll music, especially the Rolling Stones. Barbara made an everlasting impression with anyone and everyone she met. She had a calm and peaceful way to her that made you feel welcome.

Her faith was Christian Science and she was very loving, caring, and extremely spiritual. She truly believed that we are all one with the light and the light is one with us.

Barbara faced any obstacle or challenge that was given to her, including her fight with lung cancer. Her faith and hope was strong to the end, and now by the grace of God and his love she is free to fly. She truly was a special soul who will be missed and loved by all.
