Barbara Jo Alexander Drown was born February 28, 1944 in Marshall, Texas to Dock Alexander and Ovelia Tillman Alexander. Barbara enjoyed gardening, going to the boats, and loving on her fur babies. She was an amazing woman who loved her family more than anything in the world. She could be a little spitfire at times, but nothing was more important to her than her family, her grandchildren and making sure the love of her life, Charlie was taken care of. Barbara will be missed tremendously by those who loved her most and will be a light that will always shine bright in the lives she touched.
