Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, June 18, 2019 at Grace Fellowship at South Park, formerly First Congregational Christian Church, 1863 South Park Drive, Reidsville, where she was a lifelong member. The service will be officiated by Dr. John Marks and the burial will follow at Evergreen Memory Gardens.

Born in Guilford County, Barbara was the daughter of the late Lonnie and Lillian Brown. A 1953 graduate of Reidsville High School, she attended King’s Business College in Danville, Va. She was employed by Bell South for 38 years until her retirement in 1993. Her faithful service to her church included singing alto in the choir, teaching Sunday School, assisting with “In His Name” food pantry and lovingly served the Women’s Fellowship in many roles over the years. She was known for her cake baking and peach cobblers. She was dedicated to her family and adored her grandchildren. Barbara is survived by her husband of 62 years, William Edwin Gunn, Jr.; her daughters, Kathy Gunn Page and husband, Sam, and Angela Gunn Stadler and husband, Bentley; grandchildren, Kimberly Michelle Page and fiancé, Alex Williams, Jacob William Stadler and Jared Bentley Stadler; sisters, Ila Sue Sharpe and husband, James, and Brenda Collie and husband, George (G.T.); brother-in-law Starling Gunn and wife, Glenda; and a large extended family. Memorial contributions may be made to the Women’s Fellowship of the church. Condolences may be sent to the family at www.wilkersonfuneral.com.

We send our deepest sympathy to Edwin and all the family in the loss of Barbara. She was the one who was always willing to help others and participate in Christian activities. When we met for our last high school reunion, Barbara provided cake and other desserts for us to enjoy during the meeting. This is just one example of her generous nature to make others feel comfortable. Her memory will be in our hearts for the remainder of our lives. Emma Sue and David Hooper
