Barbara Jean Prior Meadows

January 1, 1939 — January 2, 2022

Barbara Jean Prior Meadows (82), born on March 15, 1939, passed away in her home on January 02, 2022. She is preceded in death by her parents Mary Margaret Prior and Neal Brown Prior; husband James Alton Meadows; daughters Judy Faye Meadows and Janice Marie King; grandson Michael James Austin; and brothers and sisters Helen Louise Sands, Larry Wayne Prior, Lewis Raymond Prior, and Shelia June Sutton.

Barbara became a widow at the young age of 32. She singlehandedly raised 4 children while working at Nicholstone Book Bindery for over 31 years. She was a strong believer in Christ, and she relied on her faith in God Almighty to live and govern her life. She was also a sports fanatic, and her favorite team was the TN Titans (when they were playing well). She loved NCIS and Chicago PD so much that her idol TV star “Gibbs” recently sent her a flower arrangement with well wishes. Her world revolved around family and photos to always remember the good times. Barbara, Momma, Granny, you will surely be missed.
