Mrs. Barbara Ann Nabors, age 85, of South Fulton, Tenn., passed away at the Clinton-Hickman County I.C. F. in Clinton, Ky., on March 29, 2023.

She was born on October 2, 1937 in Fulton County, Ky., to the late Buford E. and Maudie Belle Clark Bennett.

Mrs. Barbara was a member of the South Fulton Baptist Church. She worked for the former Ferry-Morse Seed Company and had lived in this area all of her life. Barbara was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. She was an exceptional mother who was very active in the lives of her children. As her children grew and had families of their own, that love and dedication grew to include her cherished grandchildren and great-grandchildren. From school and sporting events to holiday parties and get togethers, Barbara had the ability to make every occasion special. Barbara enjoyed to travel the US and spend time at the lake. She also enjoyed playing cards with friends. She was a wonderful cook and took great pleasure in making meals for her family and friends. Barbara had such a kind, sweet soul and never met a stranger. Her upbeat and feisty nature will always be remembered.

Barbara was very inspirational and had many words of wisdom to offer to those around her. She would often remind her loved ones, "Don't sweat the small stuff." She was also very strong in her faith and love for God, which inspired her to become a founding member of the SFBC’s Widows Group, Golden Girls Breakfast Club.

Taylor of South Fulton, Tenn.; a son, Joel A. “Joey” Nabors (Lisa) of South Fulton, Tenn.; four grandchildren, Lance Taylor (Tiffany) of South Fulton, Tenn., Blake Taylor (Shanna) of Mayfield, Ky., Zachary Nabors (Angie) of South Fulton, Tenn., and Hope French (Lucas) of Paducah, Ky.; and eight great-grandchildren, Benton Taylor, Clark Taylor, Oaklyn Taylor, Logan Davis, Ellison French, Ezra French, Liam Nabors and Lily Nabors.
