On Friday morning , Heaven got a little bit sweeter. A faithful mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, neighbor, and friend went to be with the Lord that she loved and served faithfully for many years. She was the daughter of the late John A. Hill and Helena C. Collins Hill. A husband John W. Barcus, to whom she was married for 46 years, preceded her in death. Three brothers also preceded her in death: Johnny Lee Hill, Adam Daniel Hill, and Steve Roach, as well as two sisters, Lucy Virginia Martin and Lurena (Rene) Broyles.
Surviving her is a dear sister Mickey and two beloved sons Richard and John Jr.. She also left behind four grandchildren as well as seven great-grandchildren.
She was a faithful member of the Addison FWB Church and served as church clerk for 25 years. She also held the office of church secretary for over thirty years. She loved to sing gospel music and sang with the Addison Quartet and in the Addison FWB choir. Many will remember her as the owner and operator of Mary’s Market on Central Avenue in Gallipolis. We will want to remember that she was full of life and heart, sharing her laughter, her time, and her love with her family, her church, her friends, and her community.
John W. Barcus
