She was feisty, fun-loving, caring, thoughtful and very generous. She was a loving wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend. She was the ultimate 'big sister' to her four siblings, very proud of her son and loved her granddaughter Marissa. In addition to her parents and husband, she was predeceased by an infant daughter (Ivey Lee), a sister and brother-in-law (Mary Ellen & Warren Coble), a brother (Robert Lee McNeal) and two nephews. She is survived by her son (R. Wayne Barbee) and wife (Jeanne) of Glen Allen, VA; granddaughter (Marissa Barbee) of Richmond, VA; sister and brother-in-law (Martha Ann and Randy Ward) of Gibsonville, NC; sister (Linda Jean McNeal) of Greensboro, NC, and sister-in-law (Maggie McNeal) of Summerfield, NC. She is also survived by four nieces, two nephews, many great-nieces and great-nephews.

The family expresses a special thank you to the staff at Friends Homes at Guilford who provided compassionate care to Carlene in recent years, and the staff of HPCG for making Carlene's last days and hours more comfortable.
