Barbara Jo McGuire passed away on December 10, 2022 at the age of 84.

She is preceded in death by her mother and father Baxter and Isabel Duncan, and her husband of 49 years Robert Martin McGuire Sr., and daughter Terri Lynn Owen. Barbara was a devoted daughter, sister, wife, mother, and grandmother who loved her family dearly. She would always do whatever she could to make sure that her family knew that she was always there for them and would express her love to them regularly. Barbara was also a devout Christian who would study the word of God daily. She would not pass up a chance to spread the gospel to anyone that she encountered, and her infectious smile and warm hugs would certainly brighten anyone’s day.
She was a member of Rocky Cross Holiness church and was the greeter there for several years. Barbara was not just a member; she was family, and her community and church family never missed a chance to let her know just how much she was loved. She touched many lives throughout her time here on earth, and for that her memory will live in many hearts forever. Barbara Jo McGuire will be celebrated and have a going home service held on Thursday December 15, 2022, 6:30 PM at Rocky Cross Holiness Church in Zebulon NC.
