In addition to her parents and her husband, Mrs. Hendricks was preceded in death by her sisters, Suzette Parker and Peggy Krause; her brother, Howard Brown; and her step-father, Homer Parker.

Barbara loved her Lord and Savior with all of her being and found her greatest expression of that love through music and teaching her children to love Him the same.  She adored her husband and loved being a pastor’s wife and serving alongside him in ministry. She loved her children and their families more than words could express, but this love was always shown through her actions and generous spirit. She will be remembered and missed by all of those she loved so well in life.

“But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.” 1 Thessalonians 4:13.
