Barbie Burdett, age 77, of Uhrichsville, passed away on Friday, June 15, 2018, at Community Hospice Truman House in New Philadelphia.
Born March 10, 1941 in Xenia, O., Barbie is the daughter of the late John Garey and Francis (Young) Western.
Barbie was a homemaker, cook, caregiver, friend and an angel of life. She loved her flowers, roses, plants, gardening, birds and butterflies. Barbie loved all of her children very much and was the rock of the family and held us all together in good times and bad. Everyone who knew Barbie loved her.
Towards the end of her illness, she loved all of her home health care aides that helped her along the way and thought of them as family.
Barbie loved going to yard sales and second hand stores; going to Poppy’s Restaurant to see family and friends. She also loved spending time with family the most. A must for her was her coffee.

And nothing seems the same;
But God calls us one by one
The chain will link again.”
