Barbara Ann Grim, a resident of Willow Springs, passed away Wednesday, November 10, 2021 while at Ozarks Healthcare in West Plains. She was born October 1, 1959 in Essex, MO to William Pete and Lola Edna (Lewis) Henson and was 62 years old.
Barbara grew up and attended school in Essex. She fell in love with Terry L. Grim and they were married at his parents' home in Essex on July 4, 1974. They remained happily married for 47 years. The couple renewed their vows on their 40th Anniversary. Barbara worked at Walmart in Dexter, MO for 10 years in the fabric department; however, she especially loved being a homemaker and taking care of her family. She also loved raising her chickens, fishing, and watching wildlife, particularly deer; however, her real passion was cooking. She was of the Pentecostal faith and loved attending church when her health allowed. She will be dearly missed by her family, her friends, and all who knew her.
Barbara was preceded in death by her parents; her younger brother, James Aaron Dean Henson; and her son, Peter.
She is survived by her husband, Terry L. Grim; her son, Terry W. Grim of Willow Springs; her daughter, Cynthia D. Grim and her wife, Sarah of Essex; a grandson, Dakota James Grim; and three brothers and two sisters. Further survivors include several very special nieces and nephews.
In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests donations in her memory be made to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and they may be left at the funeral home.
