BARBARA ANN BRIDGES walked through the gates of Heaven on May 2, 2012. After a long and brave battle against Alzheimer's disease, she passed from this earth to a renewed body, mind and spirit.
Barbara was born May 29, 1942 in Beaumont, Texas. Barbara was a loving and cherished wife, mother and daughter. She was a lifelong resident of Texas City, Texas. She graduated from Texas City High School in 1959 and married her high school sweetheart, William "Pete" Bridges. Barbara and Pete shared more than 58 years of a lifelong love. Barbara was the original "multi-tasker" long before the phrase was coined. She was capable of handling anything placed before her with grace, efficiency, sincere thought and care. She worked and retired from College of the Mainland in 1997 as a secretary and assistant to many departments of the college. In her years of retirement, while dealing with Alzheimer's, she loved and was greatly loved by her family.
