Barbara Webb Darnell, age 100, was born November 3, 1918 and passed away June 8, 2019 surrounded by family and friends. The daughter of the late James Elmer Webb and Eula Hammond Webb, Barbara was born and raised in Forsyth County. In 1935, she married Fred Darnell. They later became longtime residents of Alpharetta, GA. They served their community for 43 years as established business owners of Darnell's Store and Dry Cleaners and Barbara's Beauty Shop. Barbara was the definition of hard work and determination. She loved to work with her hands: styling hair, tending to plants, and restoring furniture. She was an avid gardener known for creating beautiful landscapes. Most of all, she loved serving her family through acts of kindness, whether it be a home cooked meal, time spent caring for her grandkids, or mowing a lawn. She welcomed those she loved into her home and into her beauty shop, and no one left her presence without receiving sound advice, a glass-bottle Coke, or an Oatmeal Cream Pie. Barbara cherished the time she had with her family, and she took pride in her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She loved well-lived well-served well-and died well. In 200, she moved to Canton to be near her daughter. There she joined and attended Mr. Zion Baptist Church. Survivors include her daughters Sandra Brown, Carrollton, GA and Terry (Doug) Mulkey of Canton, GA; Grandsons Kent (Angela) Brown, Carrollton, GA, Deron (Deborah) Brown, Castle Rock, CO, Matt Mulkey, Atlanta, GA; Granddaughters Kim (Kevin) Griggs, Montclair, VA, Sarah (John) Edwards, Canton, GA; Great Grandchildren Dean Brown, Dillon Brown, Devon Brown, Garrett Brown, Colin Brown, and Will Brown, Jaden Griggs, Ransom Griggs, Audrey Cate Edwards, and Maggie Edwards; Sister Betty Jean (Lamar) Holbrook, Roswell, GA; Niece Lisa (Neal) Cash, Woodstock, GA. Preceded in death by parents, husband, Fred Darnell, Sister, Vertie Kathryn Morris, and son-in-law, Dean Brown. The family will receive friends at Northside Chapel in Roswell for visitation on Wednesday, June 12, 2019 from 5:00pm - 8:00pm and Thursday, June 13, 2019 from 12:00pm - 2:00pm.
