Barbara Ann Ward

September 25, 1953 ~ June 19, 2022 (age 68)


Barbara Ann Ward passed away on Sunday June 19, 2022 at the age of 68.

Barbara was born on September 25, 1953 to James and Betty Clark.  She married her soul mate, Terry Ward September 4, 1998 , they were everything to each other.  Barbara had a big heart and loved taking care of others. This characteristic pushed her to the medical field as a registered nurse, even after her retirement she found herself caring for others.  She and Terry also enjoyed the water that coastal life afforded, boating, fishing, crabbing or just sitting watching the sun go down. Her unexpected death has left a great void in the lives of those she loved and cared for. With every body of water, sunrise or sunset that we see we will see you and a live well lived. Gone but not forgotten.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a sister, Janet Krimmo, and a daughter, Terri Lucas.

 She is survived by her husband Terry Ward of Gautier, MS; two daughters, Jennifer Ward and Amanda Pittman, a son; Jason Ridgeway; siblings, James Clark and Roxanne; father and mother-in-law, Bob and Norma Jean Ward; brothers-in-law; Doug, Larry and Bill Ward; seven grandchildren, Maria Pittman, Ava Pittman, Lorena Pittman, Jocelyn Pittman, Jaeden Ridgeway, Christian and Angel Lucas.
