Barbara Jean Vest-Elam, 61, passed away peacefully in her sleep at her home in Springtown. She battled with diabetes and neuropathy for years along with other illnesses.

Service was held at 11 a.m. Monday, May 20, 2019 at Biggers Funeral Chapel.

Visitation was from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday at the funeral home.

Mrs. Elam was born August 21, 1957 in Pecos, but later grew up in Brownfield, where her mother, Edrie and father, Marvin Vest raised her along with three other siblings. She was the baby of the family.

She later married James Elam on June 27, 1977, and then three years later had one daughter, Amanda Kay, and one son, Cori Wayne, who sadly passed away October 17, 1981. He died of sudden infant death syndrome at the age of four months old.

Barbara was one of the most kind-hearted people you would have ever met. She was funny, sassy, and honest. She would help anyone she could who was in need of anything. She was always there. She loved with her whole heart.

There are just not enough words to describe how amazing she was. She loved her grandbabies so much. Laney Kay, Kiley, Jean and Bailey Reece were her whole world. She truly loved you all.

Survivors include her Husband, James Elam; daughter, Amanda Kay; granddaughters, Laney Kay, Kiley, Jean, and Bailey Reece; her sister, nieces, nephews, and many friends.
