Barbara grew up in Albertville and attended Albertville High School where she graduated. Soon after she graduated, she had her son Rondel, who was the apple of her eye.
30 plus years ago, a new employee joined the company where Barbara worked, and the boss set them up on a date. Steve Kunkel swept Barbara off her feet by treating her like a Queen until the day she passed. They were married for over 30 years.
Barbara is survived by the love of her life Steve Kunkel; her grandsons Blake Stewart and William Tyler Stewart; her sister Betty Simpson; her sister-in-law Pat Kapas.
The family will receive friends from 12:00 pm Friday until the time of the service.
