Barbara was born in Stephenville, Texas on July 4, 1935, to Thomas and Christine (Bray) Stone. She was one of 8 children which as you could imagine helped make her extremely tough. Being the oldest daughter in her family formed her into the self-sacrificing, hard worker who never complained. Barbara was an avid reader. She loved to read, play games, and do puzzles. Her intelligence and work ethic were quickly seen by anyone who met her.

On March 28, 1952, she married the love of her life, Kenneth D Haley. She always fondly talked about their adventures together as he served our country, and they grew up together. Kenneth’s sense of humor always kept her laughing and moving through life. There was no one she loved more than Kenneth, but her pride and joy was her son Wayne.

She loved her family dearly and was always willing to support and cheer them on in any endeavors they set out on. She could always be counted on to be steady in any storm, and a strong shoulder to cry on if needed. She never complained about her own struggles but was always a good listening ear for anyone in need.

Barbara was a member of the First Baptist Church in Stephenville. She loved serving as a Sunday School teacher and talked fondly of her church friends. 

She is preceded in death by her husband Kenneth on July 12, 2017, and her brothers Ed, Henry, Richard, Runt, and Rodney. 

Barbara is survived by her son Wayne Haley and wife Jennifer of Stephenville; grandchildren Michael Haley and wife Amanda of Johnson City, Kenny Haley and wife Kiley of Stephenville; great grandchildren Zachary, Avery, Boston, and Kenna; 2 sisters, Dorothy Davis and husband Doug, and Loretta Sellars and husband Bob.
