   Barbara Smith Hendrix, 72, of 422 Cannons Ferry Road, passed away on Sunday, April 10th, 2022 in her home in Tyner, NC.

   She was born in Portsmouth, VA on March 26th, 1950, to James Thomas Smith and Gladys Pearl Smith. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by sisters Shirley Marshall, Frances Shephard Rogers and Gladys “Sister” Garris and brothers Daniel, Frank, Richard and Bobby Smith.

   Barbara was a clever homemaker with a very strong spirit. She was passionate about her family. She was a jokester who dearly loved to laugh and to tease, but playing games was something she took very seriously, and she could not lose when playing cards! Fishing, crabbing, and travelling to the mountains and to the beach were some of her favorite times and some of her family’s favorite memories.
