She was preceded in death by her parents, Robert and Dot Johnson and Lois and Ben Nile; brothers, Adam Johnson and Danny Crowder; and grandson, Nathan Watson. Barbara was a member of Ettrick Fellowship Baptist Church. She retired from Walmart Distribution in Sutherland, Virginia.

She never met a stranger and could carry on a conversation with anyone. She had an immense love for her grandchildren and her dogs, and was also a fan of the Dallas Cowboys. Barbara was never known to be seen without a Pepsi in her hand. She will be greatly missed by her family and all who knew her. Barbara is survived by her children, Steven Watson (Niki) and Patsy Almany (Bobby); grandchildren, Kayla, Corey, Alexis, Tyler, Madison, Jackson, and Cameron; great-granddaughter, Wrenleigh; sisters, April Clark, Beverly Emory, and Ann Marsee; brother, Robbie Crowder; lifelong friend, Bonnie Sue Reyes (Craig); and extended family members and friends.
