Barbara was a wife, mother, sister, grandmother, friend and caregiver. She worked for both Chicago and Aurora Board of Election Commissioners. Barbara was strong, generous, and caring to name a few of her amazing traits. She loved to travel and see the world, she loved taking walks in parks with relaxing scenery, and most of all; she loved taking care of her loved ones. The Gift You have worked so hard Over the years. Finishing your classes With all your peers. With me in your belly You did not stop. A child for your birthday The ultimate prop. You were so young Never taking a dive. When you could have packed your bags To run off and hide. With your back to the wall You kept throwing your punches. Now these days we have champagne brunches. And to you I give the greatest toast. For doing the best And making the most Out of situations that could have been bad. A mom, her child that with no dad. But as you know this was just the start. A relationship built straight from the heart. To you my mom you’ve passed the test. Giving me wisdom. Keeping me blessed. ©By: Lamont Johnson Barbara is survived by her husband Jonathan; Her son Lamont, his wife Katie and their three children: Lamont Jr., Charlize, and Dezmin; Her daughter Tomeca and her husband, Jordan; Her stepdaughter, Harriett and her husband, Stephen and their three children: Jonathan, Tracy, and Kwasi; Her mother, Baby Dean and siblings; Johnnie Mae, Sam, Michael, Patricia, Odell, Odean, Zan, MacField, and Ken; preceded by her sister, Ethel.
