Karen Ann Barber

October 23, 1953 — July 16, 2022


Karen Ann Jacob-Barber was born to mother, Anna V Jacob and father, Amos Jacob, in 1953 on October 23rd. She was the 4th oldest of 6 children: Willie Jacob, Thomas Jacob, Shirley Cox, herself, Phyllis Jacob, and Linda Jacob. Although Karen was not the oldest regarding her siblings, she lead her own path and always lived her life to the fullest, believing that she could do anything she put her mind to; even if sometimes the law disagreed. Karen continues to share her legacy with the world, in the form of her 3 children Ezekiel, Anthony and Gary.

Karen was a loving and forgiving soul, sometimes even to those who didn't deserve it, but if you mistreated one of her loved ones, especially Z-man, Anthony or Bird-Bird, you'd better be ready for a fight, cause she was coming to whoop your happy-ass. Karen also has 9 grandchildren Dastallion, Armonie, Kingston, Anthony Jr., Jayvin, Tasjay, Alander, Zaniyah and Tabias, who she loved to complain about and spend time with.

Karen was not only Kind Awesome Relentless Energetic Naturally, she was also a Mother, a Grandma, a Sister, a Auntie, a Widow, a friend and a Teacher, and now she's an ascended angel. You're already missed but you relax in paradise Kick Ass Jacob Barber.
