BRIEF LIFE HISTORY
OF
BARBARA ANN GEORGE
A glimpse into the brief life of our be-
loved daughter Barbara Ann George. re-
veals that she was born on December 7.
1958, at Holloman Air Force Base, Ala-
orgodo. New Mexico, the second child
of Elroy and Pauline George of St.
Thomas. Virgin Islands.
Her first two years were spent on this
military installation until December 31.
1960 when she returned to St. Thomas
with her mother and brothers to stay
temporarily while her father completed
i a tour of duty in Western Germany,
which ended in July of 1962.
On September 30. 1962. her family was reunited at Fort Riley, Kan-
sas. and it was at this military base that she started her elementary edu-
cation which continued until December 6. 1966, when the military
tour of the George's family ended and they returned to St. Thomas
Virgin Islands to live.
Upon their return she was enrolled in Dober Elementary School for
a short period of time and in 1967 was transferred to St. Peter and
Paul School which she attended until her departure from this earth.
At the time of her death she was completing her junior year in high
school as a member of the college preparatory course and intended to
enter the reaching profession one day.
Barbara. affectionately known to her families and friends as "Babs"
was a human being of inward beauty, a beauty that can truly be said to
be a joy forever.
Of Barbara. some of her teachers had this to say: "She was nice.
friendly, quiet. and pleasant. She liked to sing: loved 'Soul music', had
fun at gym class with 'her old sneakers'. was always ready to listen and
had a good sense of humor":
She is survived by her parents, Mr. & Mrs. Elroy A. George. Sr.. two
sisters, Judith and Denise, three brothers, Elroy. Jr., Elston and Alston.
grandmother Mrs. Ann Luke, and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
