Barbara Jean Woolley

EDMOND —     Barbara Jean Woolley, 81, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Oct. 15, 2012. She was born Jan. 22, 1931 in Oklahoma City, Okla. to Douglas and Levina Hervey.

    Barbara was a devoted and loving wife to her husband of 44 years Neil E. Woolley, and a compassionate and caring mother to her three children Memorie, Jeaneil and Neil.

    Family and friends were the most important thing to her. If you were going to Barbara’s house you knew to go hungry and be ready for lots of hugs and kisses. She genuinely loved everyone she met. She was a true example of the fruit of the spirit – love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control.

    Barbara was a member of First Baptist Church for 39 years where she served as a Sunday school teacher and hospitality leader in her Sunday school class. She was a stay at home mom while her children were young and then a dedicated employee at Canyon Park and Westbrook Family Physicians.

    Barbara is survived by her daughter Jeaneil Bullock and husband Jack Bullock, son Neil Woolley and wife Kelli Woolley, sons-in-law James Morrow and Kenneth Gonzales, 23 grandchildren, 28 great-grandchildren, two great-great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews who she loved very much.

    She was preceded in death by her husband Neil Woolley, daughter Memorie Gonzales and parents Douglas and Levina Hervey.

    Visitation will be Wednesday Oct. 17, 2012 at Baggerley Funeral Home in Edmond Okla.

    A graveside memorial service will be 10 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 18, 2012 at Sunny Lane Cemetery, 4000 SE 29th St, Del City OK 73115.
