Barbara was born on November 1, 1940, in Marlin, TX, to Carl Linn Mark and Mary Elizabeth Walker Mark. She moved to Norwalk, California, where she met and married the love of her life, Gary Lee Coleman, on May 28, 1958. After a short time in California, they moved back to Texas where they raised their family. Barbara was known for her kind and giving spirit, always the first to the rescue in any crisis. She loved her friends and was always there for support. She was a homemaker until her children were grown and then went immediately into the work force. She was loved and appreciated by all her co-workers. As a couple, Barbara and Gary loved to travel and hang out with their special friends, “The Gang”.
Barbara was preceded in death by her husband Gary of 35 years; her parents; three sisters; one brother; and one great-grandson.
Barbara is survived by her daughter, Tanya Rosas, of Marlin; and a son, Korey Coleman and his wife Jan, of Robinson; her grandchildren, Crystal Zimmerman, Ian Coleman and wife Megan, and Shelby Rosas and fiancé Khiry Hill. She is also survived by her great-grandchildren, Kiersten and Landon Kinsey, Joleigh and Addison Zimmerman, and Hayes and Houston Coleman; and a host of nieces and nephews, friends, and her sweet Precious Pearls friends at MBC.
The family would like to give a special thanks to Dr. E and the staff at Texas Oncology, and to Providence Hospice for their tender, loving care.
