Barbara Ann Critzman

Barbara Ann Critzman, age 77, of Nixa, Missouri, entered into rest on January 1, 2023.

Barbara Ann was born on February 15, 1945, in St. Louis Missouri to the late Russell and Florence (Cook) Peddicord. Barbara was a devoted Mother, Grandmother, great grandmother, and Aunt. She enjoyed reading her Bible, going to church, and shopping. One of her first loves was music, she use to sing country western and her voice was beautiful. She once had the privilege of singing with Mickey Gilley in Nashville Tennessee. She gave up her dream to take care of her children, to her they were the most important thing in her life. She worked various jobs with various roles to provide for her children as a single Mom, days were tough, she persevered and kept her children together. Her final job was working food distribution and customer service for a local Sams club. She enjoyed meeting new people. She spent a lot of her time watching the Hallmark channel, she was a romancer by heart. She was a gentle soul who had so much love to give. Barbara was active in the choirs of the churches she attended as well as participated in local Christmas plays and shows produced by the church.

There is an irreplaceable void that will be in our hearts as each of her loved ones walk out our time here on this earth without her. Our hearts ache for her but we rejoice that she is home with Jesus and we look forward to living for all eternity with her where there will be no more pain or suffering under the rule of a Loving and Just King, Jesus Christ.

Barbara was a wonderful lady and I loved her very much. Even though I haven’t seen her in many years, her and the Schoenfeldt family have a special place in my heart. There was a time when I spent a lot of time with many of you. You all treated me like part of your family and I feel the same in return. I am so sorry for your loss everyone. May the memories of your mom and grandma, etc. live on in your hearts and our Lord comfort you all. May God continue to bless and guide you all 🙏
