Barbara Louise Dorr
April 26, 2023
Barbara Louise (Hynum) Dorr, wife of Lee Ross Dorr, Sr. (Glasgow High School '57), passed away Tuesday, April 4, 2023. She was born Feb. 22, 1942, in Pattison, Miss., to Benjamin Pierce Hynum and Thelma Eloise Fife Hynum.
Barbara had a big personality and never met a stranger. Everyone who knew her loved her (and EVERYONE knew her). No one loved her more than her Montana man who captured her heart while passing through on his way to Florida.
Barbara and Lee raised three beautiful children and celebrated 58 years of marriage. Barbara enjoyed spending precious time with her five granddaughters. They were the light of her world, she simply adored them. Her nieces and nephews knew her as the "Greatest" Aunt Barbara and always cherished visits with her.
Barbara was a pillar of strength and grace. She lived a wonder life, blessing people with her generosity and kindred spirit. She will be dearly missed.
Barbara was a member of First Baptist Church of Madison, Miss.
She is survived by her husband Lee Ross Dorr; daughter Debra Dorr Thomas and husband Philip W Thomas; son Lee Ross Dorr, Jr and wife Kasey; granddaughters Savannah Thomas (27), Madison Klein (22), Mallie Zandra Thomas (16), Ella McLaine Dorr (16) and Emerson Leigh Dorr (12); and brother Rudolph Neal Hynum.
She was preceded in death by her brother Lewis Pierce Hynum; and daughter Zandra Dorr Klein.
