Obituary for Barbara Bartlett (Sharr)

Barbara Ann (Sharr) Bartlett, 87, of Smithville, passed away peacefully on Thursday, August 17th, 2017. Born July 24th, 1930 in Lawrence County, Indiana, she was the daughter of Shirley and Pearl Ann (Kirk) Sharr.
Barb was a member of Smithville Christian Church, and a member of the Smithville Area Association. She loved to help the Smithville community in any way she could, volunteering her time and cooking many wonderful desserts and dishes to help with the Smithville Labor Day Celebration. She loved to work in her garden, which was always immaculate and full of vegetables. She enjoyed canning, sewing, picking berries, making jellies, and being outdoors. Barb was an amazing cook, and anyone who happened to stop by the farm to say hello usually didn't leave without eating something and having a cup of coffee. There was always food available to eat in her kitchen, and she made her famous homemade biscuits every morning. She was a farmer and was no stranger to hard work, laboring tirelessly with the rest of her family on the farm, milking cows, fixing fence, helping deliver calves, and doing the many other tasks of everyday farm life. She was a very kind and humble lady who had a heart of gold.
Barb is survived by her daughter, Trudy Ann Bartlett, her daughter-in-law, Barbara J. Bartlett, grandson Jake Bartlett and his wife Christine, grandson Matthew Bartlett, and great-granddaughter Jolene Ann Bartlett, all of Smithville; her sisters, Norma Bartlett and Ruby Cracraft (husband Willard), her brother, Bob Sharr, brother-in-law Joe Bartlett (wife Marion), her sister-in-law, Kathryn Bartlett, all of Lawrence County, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
She was preceeded in death by her husband, Richard Bartlett, her son, Tommy Bartlett, her brother, Jim Sharr, and her sister, Bernice Ritter.
Visitation for Barb will be held from 2-6pm Sunday, August 20th, 2017 at The Funeral Chapel of Powell & Deckard, 3000 E. Third St., in Bloomington.
Funeral services will be held at 11am Monday, August 21st, 2017 at The Funeral Chapel with an hour of calling prior to the service. Buck Smith and Larry Ritter will officiate, and burial will follow at Bartlettsville Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, Barbs family requests that memorial contributions in her memory be made to the Tommy Bartlett Walking Trail c/o the Clear Creek Township, the Smithville Food Pantry, or the Bartlettsville Cemetery.
