Barbara Ann McGuire, 79, passed away in her home after a courageous battle with cancer on July 18 2019. She was born on February 2, 1940 to Marion (Dutch) and Anna Mae Mills in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
She is survived by two children: Michael James McGuire and wife Kelly of Ft. Worth, Texas and Rick McGuire of Stillwater, Oklahoma. Three grandchildren: Whitney McGuire, Abbey McGuire and Cody Aldridge. She was blessed with a sister Galatha Schwartz of Yukon, Oklahoma: nieces Annie and Katie Schwartz, nephews Ben and Jon Schwartz and Great Nephew Dutch. Also Barb was blessed with numerous life long friends.
Barbara spent most of her 40+year career in banking starting at Local Federal and other financial institutions. Most recently she enjoyed spending time caring for the elderly in their homes taking care of their needs.
She was an avid reader and loved to crochet. She enjoyed giving homemade gifts to everyone she knew. Her passion was cooking for her family and friends. Her specialty was macaroni and cheese, salads, and desserts. Her biggest enjoyment was spoiling her grandchildren.
Barbara mentioned daily how thankful she was for her sister, son, daughter-in-law, closest friends and the Centennial Hospice Staff for helping her through her most difficult time.
She went home to her Lord with her family and friends by her side. In lieu of flowers, the family would ask that you please make donations, in her honor, to The American Cancer Society.
