Barbara was raised by her grandmother Sarah Jane Brown in Duncan where she attended Lee School.  She married the love of her life, Levi Lumbert on Aug. 12, 1957, in Henrietta, TX.  God blessed her with a special needs child, Darrell.  She took this responsibility seriously, devoted her life to him and all her family.  She often said, her children were her life.  Barbara worked for Wal-Mart in Duncan before transferring to Pearsall, TX where she retired.  She prepared every holiday meal for her family from scratch and insisted her grandson Scott to say Grace.  Barbara was a loving wife, doting mother, grandmother, great grandmother, daughter and friend.  She was extremely proud of her Choctaw Heritage, doing yard work and listening to music.  Barbara was a member of the First Baptist Church in Pearsall, TX.
Preceding her in death is her mother, Mary Brines and granddaughter Lindsey.
