OBITUARY ~ BARBARA ANN (SEFRIT) SHIELDS

November 10, 1949 ~ February 26, 2012

Barbara Ann (SEFRIT) SHIELDS was born November 10, 1949 in Leon, IA to Robert and Kathleen (GARRETT) SEFRIT. Barbara grew up on a farm near Delphos, IA and attended elementary school in Redding and Delphos. She was baptized and received Christ as her Savior as a young girl. She graduated from Mount Ayr Community High School in 1968.

Barbara was united in marriage to Barton SHIELDS on August 3rd, 1968 in Delphos, Iowa. She and Bart moved to their family farm south of Mount Ayr where they have resided for 43 years. Barbara enjoyed working on the farm and being a homemaker always keeping a spotless house and an immaculate yard. She loved cooking for her family, gardening, and canning. Barbara was always very involved in her church teaching Sunday school and playing the piano. Barbara taught Preschool for several years as well.

The highlight of Barbara's life was her grandchildren. She was very proud of each of their accomplishments. She spent countless hours entertaining them and would drop anything to spend time with them.

Barbara was a kind, loving, and caring woman who was always showing God's love even to strangers. She always put others first and could make any situation a positive one. She always had the right words to say to make everyone feel better. She spent countless hours helping family and friends through their trials of life. Her endless faith persevered through the years; even through her illness, always rejoicing in the Lord.

Barbara passed away February 26, 2012.

She is survived by her husband Barton; children Christy (Brad STILL) of Kellerton, Lanette SHIELDS of Mount Ayr, Josh (Christi SHIELDS) of Mount Ayr; grandchildren Allie, Trevor, Kelcie, Mackenzie, Macey, and Kaylie; mother-in-law Mabel SHIELDS; sister Nancy BRAUCH (Terry) of Waukee; brother Robert SEFRIT (Amy) of Faifax, MO; brother-in-law Joe SHIELDS (Margaret) of Fort Dodge, IA.

She was preceded in death by her granddaughter Charlcey Ann BOWEN; parents Robert and Kathleen SEFRIT; and father-in-law Junior SHIELDS.

A memorial fund has been established in her name to be decided later.

Services were held on Tuesday, February 28 at 10:30 AM, United Methodist Church of Mount Ayr. Interment was made at Rose Hill Cemetery, Mount Ayr, Iowa.

Watson-Armstrong Funeral Home of Mount Ayr was in charge of arrangements.
