Barbara Jean Harry

of Little Rock, AR

March 11, 1931 - September 22, 2020

Barbara Jean Harry ''Barb'' of Little Rock, passed away on September 22, 2020 in Lonoke, Arkansas after an extended illness.

She was born in Murphysboro, Illinois in 1931 to Harvey and Ellie Mae Mohler and married her high school sweetheart, Dale Harry on December 30, 1950. She and Dale left Murphysboro and moved to Little Rock, Arkansas in 1965.

In 1972, Barbara went to work for Neurology Associates, P.A. and retired 24 years later, a fulfilling career working with the many talented neurologists. The patients were always welcomed by her warm smile and compassionate nature. She will be missed by all who knew her. All were welcome in her life with open arms and her generosity knew no limits, always smiling with the patience of a saint. When not caring for all the children, she was exercising with her friends or working the crossword puzzles and reading.

Surviving are one daughter, Gayle Nix of Sherwood, AR and one son, Kent Harry (Kathy) of Tyler, TX. Daughter-in-law, Jonnie Sue Harry of Sherwood, AR. Also surviving her are 8 grandchildren; Callie Harry House, Ross Harry (Alesha), Philip Harry, Stephanie Nix Calloway (Blake), Melissa Nix Cintron (Dave), Gregory Harry (Aubrey), Rebecca Harry Bedell (Matt) and Stacy Graff. 16 great-grandchildren; Kayle, Selena, Adelaide, Eleanor, Julia, Tyler, Sadie, Jax, Chace, Beyla, Aven, Scottlyn, Case, Emma, Alex and one to be named in October.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Dale Harry, son, Michael Harry, daughter-in-law, Sarai Harry and son-in-law, Steve Nix. A special acknowledgement to all the wonderful caregivers at Lonoke Health and Rehab Center in Lonoke, Arkansas for their love and special care during her stay, the family sincerely appreciates the love you showed our sweet mother. In lieu of flowers please donate to your charity of choice. There will be a private family service and her remains will be placed beside her husband in Murphysboro.

A mother's love is always with her children and grandchildren. Losing a mother is one of the deepest sorrows a heart can know. But her goodness, her caring, and her wisdom live on-like a legacy of love that will always be with you. May that love surround you now and bring you peace.
