Obituary - Barbara Barlow Barbara Barlow
A Larger Than Life Character

 Barbara Barlow passed from this life on September 6, 2022, leaving a loss in her little hometown of Mina, Nevada.

To know her was to see a kind, loving person who would do anything for you. Barbara’s talk was rough and caustic, but her actions were unmistakably kind and caring. She had a remarkably good sense of humor and a quick wit.  Barbara was generous beyond measure, thoughtful beyond words, and ornery beyond description.

Throughout Barbara’s long life in Mina, she immersed herself in raising a family and serving the community.  Always ready for a new adventure, whether driving a school bus, acting as constable, flagging for NDOT, or cooking for the mines, she gave it her all and added a fair dose of attitude. She loved the community of Mina and contributed unselfishly and constantly: weeding the cemetery, acting as area tour guide, and helping with fundraisers.

At 90 and a half years of age, she was still tending shrubs and trees in the yard, caring for neighbors and friends, and providing care and attention to her beloved dog and companion, Bella.

Barbara took her job as “coolest Gramma ever” seriously and mastered it! She loved camping, fishing, and hunting with her family, and never hesitated to be involved in her grandkids' interests and antics - waterskiing, RV-ing, nothing was off limits.  And she was always, always up for a good party.

Barbara was a good steady wife and loyal mother.  Her children learned strong ethics from her example of being responsible, disciplined,  and working hard. Barbara was available and involved in all her children’s activities, and her wonderful adventurous spirit created many fun and interesting escapades that will long be remembered.

The streets of Mina won’t be the same without her little red truck rambling around. She will live on in our hearts with amazing memories and with every margarita.

On behalf of our family, we would like to thank all of her friends for helping fulfill her days. A celebration of Barbara’s well-lived life will be forthcoming this spring.
