“And though she be but little, she is fierce.” Shakespeare.
Barbara Ann Myres passed away March 19, 2019 in Dallas, Texas. She was born on July 23, 1938 in Dallas, Texas, to William (Bill) Hobbs and Dorothy (Hall) Hobbs. She was raised in Irving, Texas, graduated from Irving High School, and resided there for most of her life. Her final years were spent with her many friends at Buffalo Creek Assisted Living in Waxahachie, Texas. She worked as an Executive Secretary at LTV/Vought Aerospace and retired after 37 years of service. Barbara was proud of her work, especially her work on the B-2 Stealth Bomber project. Her coworkers joked that “M-Cubed (Motor Mouth Myres) ran the place.” Barbara never met a stranger. She was a social butterfly and possessed a great sense of humor. Barbara enjoyed making others laugh. She loved the outdoors, camping, and riding motorcycles. Since 1965, she traveled the country as a member of the Lonestar Caravan Club and called the members her family. Barbara loved spending time with her daughter and her two grandkids—she spoiled them like any grandmother should! She loved collecting Coca-Cola products and had enough collectables to fill an antique store. Barbara was also a huge Dallas Cowboys fan. She held season tickets for many years and took credit for them winning several Super Bowls. Barbara is preceded in death by her parents, William (Bill) Hobbs and Dorothy (Hall) Hobbs; step-father, Jim Reynolds and brother William Don Hobbs. Left behind to cherish her memory are daughter Kathy Aulson and husband Patrick of Waxahachie, Texas; grandson Wesley Blake Walker of Waxahachie; granddaughter Bryn Nava and husband Rick of Hillsboro, Oregon; great-grandson “Little Ricky” and numerous other family friends, and relatives. Visitation will be held at 10:00 am with a Celebration of Barbara’s Life immediately following at 11:00 am on Saturday, March 23. Both the Visitation and Celebration of Life will be held at Waxahachie Bible Church, 621 North Grand Avenue, Waxahachie, Texas, with internment to follow at Waxahachie City Cemetery.
