The eldest of four siblings, Barbara spent her early years in the Valley before graduating high school in Corpus Christi. Soon after graduation, she met the love of her life, Jimmie Lane Counts, and they married on June 4, 1955. They went on to have six children. Those children provided her with 18 grandchildren, 48 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great grandchild. Her legacy lives on in each of them. She made it a point to have a very special relationship with each of her babies.
Throughout her life, she enjoyed square dancing, cooking, the beach, playing cards and dominoes and spending time with her family and dear friends.
She was greeted in Heaven by her parents, husband, daughter – Cathy Douglass, son – Matt Counts, grandson – Clayton Counts, and brother – Jimmie Cours.
She is survived by her daughters – Carrie Wittliff (David), Connie Simmons (Clay), son – Vic Counts (Donna), daughter – Cindy Jamar (Jerry), son-in-law – Tom Douglass and daughter-in-law – Amy Counts; sisters – Vicki Bonner, Norma Russworm (James), 17 grandchildren, all her great and great-great grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Serving as pallbearers for Mrs. Counts are Alan Wittliff, David Jamar, Brandon Simpson, Brian Jamar, Gage Hernandez, and Isaiah Jamar.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in her memory to Cherokee Children’s Home, St. Jude’s Children Hospital or your charity of choice.
