Elderess Barbara Ann Bobbitt

February 27, 1942 ~ November 27, 2017 (age 75)

    Barbara Ann Steed Crudup Bobbitt, daughter of the late James Pluto and Betty Lane Steed, was born February 27, 1942.  She answered the Master’s call to her heavenly home on Monday, November 27, 2017 at her residence.

    Barbara attended the Franklin County School System.  She loved people and that love led to the Nursing field and as a foster parent.  She worked in the nursing home setting and as a private duty nurse.

    At an early age, she joined the Red Bud Church later known as the Gospel Unlimited Church of Christ Disciples, Inc..  She was called and qualified as a Minister and later as an Evangelist under Bishop P.J. Alston.  Under her current Pastor, Bishop Johnny Alston, she was called as an Elderess.  She served her community with a Bread Ministry and Street Services to name a few.  Her goal was to tell the world and her family that the wages of sin is death and that we must be saved to make it to Heaven.

    On July 3, 1971, she was joined in marriage to Charles Lee Bobbitt.

    She was preceded in death by her sisters, Clara and Jean, her brother, James Henry and her great grandson, Jah’mari.
