SHARBER, Barbara Ann Dale—Age 89 of Goodlettsville, TN, died at home on September 9, 2020. Born August 19, 1931 in Goodlettsville. Preceded in death by her husband of 59 years, Talmadge Jackson Sharber, and her parents, Leslie Lamar and Annie Mary Willis Dale. Survived by daughters, Leslie Anne Sharber Wurst (Doug, deceased), Kelly Dale Sharber, and Mary Kyle Sharber; grandchildren Cory Jackson Wurst and Jackson Kyle Wilt; brother Leslie Staley Dale; and nieces Stella Dale Templin and Susan Dale.
A 1949 graduate of Goodlettsville High School, she was awarded the Balfour medal, best all-around, most popular girl, and was captain of her basketball team. She received a B.S. degree in 1953 from Middle Tennessee State College (now University), where she met and married her future husband.
A much-loved (and still remembered) substitute teacher at Goodlettsville High School, she was an avid sports fan, an expert seamstress, talented artist, and consummate decorator. She was most proud to be a homemaker, wife, and generous and loving mother and grandmother.
Deepest gratitude to her doctors at Saint Thomas West, to Alive Hospice, to her loving, supportive friends at Connell Memorial United Methodist Church, and to her family of friends and servers at Cracker Barrell.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Connell Memorial United Methodist Church, Goodlettsville, TN, or to the charity of your choice. A private graveside service will be held at a future date.

    Leslie Ann, Kelly, Mary, Cory and Jackson…

    I’ve been thinking of each of you and Cory and Jackson and remembering Barbara… Greg and I, and Tyler and Blake all send our warmest hugs…We and our North Carolina church family have kept Barbara on our prayer concerns list… and we will be praying for you all.

    I loved Aunt Barbara so much… I felt like she was my dear connection to our grandparents… I hope I share lots of the same genes with her! She was such a good, sweet sister to my Dad… He loved their conversations about family things, Nashville things, Goodlettsville things, Vandy things… He mentioned that now no one will be able to remember the things they-alone knew from their family days…

    She was always such a beautiful… wise, witty and wonderful woman. She seemed to breeze-through all the new changes the decades would bring… And she never seemed to age! She always seemed so calm, cool, and collected. She was incredibly intelligent, yet humble… And she found something humorous in every situation…

    Isaiah 49:16: “See, I have engraved your name on the palms of my hands…”
    1 Corinthians 15:51 “Listen, I will tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but will all be changed – in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye… Death has been swallowed up in victory.”
