Ward and husband, Jim of Ahoskie, NC; two brothers, Stanley Barnes and wife, Eileen of Murfreesboro, NC, and Don Barnes and wife, Judy of Pendleton, NC; a sister-in-law, Marianna B. Long and husband, Elbert of Conway, NC; and daughter-in-law, Michelle Warren of Murfreesboro, NC.

The family will receive friends on Friday, September 18, 2020, from 7-8:30 p.m. at Garrett-Sykes Memorial Chapel, Murfreesboro, NC, and other times at the home.
