Barbara Ann Morgan, 58 of Petoskey and formerly of Gaylord, passed away at home on Saturday, December 19, 2020.
Born in Royal Oak, Michigan on June 21, 1962, she was the daughter of Donald and Victoria (Baker) Sharrow. Barbara spent her early years in Pontiac before moving to Gaylord with her family in 1972 and later graduating from Gaylord High School.
She went on to attend Madonna University in Livonia where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work. Always learning, Barb was working toward her Master’s Degree. She has worked at NMSAS in Gaylord and at Bear River Health in Petoskey. Currently, she was working at Pineview Cottage in Harbor Springs.
Barb was always happiest outdoors enjoying the beauty of nature. She especially loved fishing and any activity near the water. Always though, her family was her priority, demonstrated by her love for them.
Surviving are her three daughters, Shawna (Steven) Ching of Traverse City, Sara (Casey) McCall of Morganton, NC and Ashley Johnston of Greenville, SC; grandchildren, Jaimasen, Sonny, Clara, Josephine, Aaron, Elizabeth and Alyvia; her mom, Vicki Sharrow of Gaylord; sisters, Billie Jean Perry of Gaylord and Donna Sauter of West Branch; several aunts, uncles and cousins; a niece and several nephews; and her beloved dog, Jazzy. In 2019, Barb was preceded in death by her dad, Donald Sharrow.
Friends may gather with Barb’s family for visitation from 11:00 AM-1:00 PM Monday, December 28, 2020 where a private family memorial service will follow. Those who wish are asked to consider memorial contributions in her memory to the family.
