Agnes Hardee Barbour, 89, died December 19, 2012 at The Oaks of Mayview. She was one of nine children born to Delma Dewitt and Lillie Tart Hardee in Johnston County, NC, on October 23, 1923.

Agnes graduated from Four Oaks High School and married George Hannibal Barbour on May 14, 1942. Following George’s discharge from the US Army at the end of WWII, they moved to Raleigh. In 1947 they purchased a home at 503 Harding Street in Raleigh, NC, which remained the family home for 65 years.

She is survived by her three daughters, Georgia Carol Barbour of Knoxville, TN; Betty Gail Barbour of Farmville, NC; and Debra Lee Barbour of Raleigh, NC as well as three grandchildren: Carrie Melissa Ange Ryan, and husband, Andrew Ryan, of Nashville, TN; Meredith Ashley Lloyd of Leland, NC; and Brendan Andrew Lloyd of Raleigh, NC. Her two great-grandchildren, Lucy Ryan and Timothy Ryan, of Nashville, TN also survive her. Agnes has two surviving sister-in-laws, Sammye Hardee of Wichita Falls, TX, and Tabitha Douglas Barbour of Raleigh, NC, as well as many cherished nieces and nephews.

The family will receive family and friends on Saturday, December 22 from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm at Bryan-Lee Funeral Home, 831 Wake Forest Rd, Raleigh, NC. A graveside service will be held at Montlawn Memorial Park in Raleigh,NC, at 1:00 PM. Flowers are welcome; however, Agnes requested that memorials be made to Hospice of Wake County, 250 Hospice Circle, Raleigh, NC 27607 or Temple Baptist Church, 1417 Clifton Street, Raleigh, NC 27604.

The family wishes to thank the many nurses, aides, and other staff members at Mayview Nursing Home for the care, patience, and respect shown towards our mother. In addition, we greatly appreciate the excellent personal care and family support provided by Hospice of Wake County during the last few months of our mother’s declining health.

Mom, you worked extremely hard your entire life and literally ‘did it all’ . . . but now you can finally rest. Your death has left all of us heartbroken, but we know that you are with God and finally free of pain.

    Debbie I was sad to hear of your Mother’s passing. Your family helped make my childhood a Leave it to Beaver/ Our Gang experience growing up. I miss the good ole days. Your Mother was always kind and happy and looked like she walked out of a Band Box.Much love and fond memories

  2. Diane Windham

    Gail just wanted to let you know that you are in our prayers and thoughts. It’s never easy letting go however when you see them in pain and knowing that they are no longer hurting and are in God’s arm it does help. Love and prayers for your family. Remember we are just a call away. Love Diane Windham and Family
