  2. Susan Hodge (Puckett) says:

    Dear Barbara worked with me at Belk and Proffit’s for many years. I have so many dear memories of her! She was the one in the home department with the no muss no fuss way of operating, and at the time that was what was needed in that business! I loved working with her! Her charisma was like that of a grandma to us “younger folks”! She will always be one of the people I will remember very fondly from those days. I am so very sorry, and I pray that the beautiful memories will carry the family through….
