In Loving Memory of
Barbara Gail Grant was born August 7, 1942 in Dallas, Texas, to Clayton and Vera Grant. On July 3, 1964 she married Bob Jackson, the love of her life.
Barbara received her BA and MA degrees at the University of North Texas. She began her teaching career with the Dallas Independent School District and later spent 32 years at the Timbercreek and Central elementary schools in the Lewisville ISD.
A warm and caring woman, she was happiest when helping other people. She enjoyed pursuing a wide variety of interests such as Boy Scout activities, attending her sonâ€™s school-age swim meets, ambling through art galleries, absorbing nature in all its seasons at the Dallas Arboretum and wandering off the beaten path on the many trips she and Bob took across the country. Her creative pursuits in photography, ceramics and stained glass were always generously shared with others.
Barbara died June 2, 2013 after a massive stroke. She was preceded in death by her parents, her older brother Imes and her beloved husband of almost 50 years. She is survived by her son Chris and many family members and friends who loved her and mourn her loss.
A Memorial Service will be held Saturday, June 15, 2013 at 2:00pm at Dalton and Son Funeral Home in Lewisville.
