Barbara Lord Kirshfield – January 22, 2016

Barbara Lord Kirshfield left this world suddenly, on January 22, 2016. She was born in Delhi, New York to Harold and Eloisae Lord and was the youngest of 6 children. She met Alfred F. Kirshfield when they both were in the Air Force.   After a whirl wind courtship, they married in Biloxi Mississippi on June 7, 1952 and enjoyed 63 years together. She leaves behind her husband as well as her two daughters, Janice Kirshfield of Woodbine, GA and Sherra (Tim) Nuttall of Woodbine, GA; her grandchildren who she loved tremendously Eloisae (Michael) Patterson of Martinez, GA, Brianna (Brandon) May of St. Mary’s, GA, Vivian (Clester) Hornsby of Augusta, GA, Kevin (Denise) West of Ft. Stewart, GA, Alex (Ashleigh) Nuttall of Woodbine, GA, Keith West of Far Rockaway, NY, and Garth L Nuttall III of Woodbine GA; and her great grandchildren, Drue and Ian Patterson, Cameron and Addison May, Lillian and Tyler Hornsby, and Kaia and Thea Nuttall; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. She will be remembered for her love of nature and her giving spirit. She was an avid Wildcat Football fan and barely missed a game in the past 25 years. She retired from The Public Affairs office on Kings Bay Submarine Base, Georgia, and had been a civil servant for over 50 years. She traveled the world with her husband Alfred and they settled in Camden County in 1987 where they have resided since. In lieu of flowers the family asks that you place a bird feeder in your yard in her memory or donate to a charity of your choice. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

Allison Memorial Chapel and Funeral Home of St. Marys is in charge of arrangements.

    May the good earth be soft under you
    when you rest upon it,
    and may it rest easy over you when,
    at the last, you lay out under it,
    And may it rest so lightly over you
    that your soul may be out
    from under it quickly,
    and up, and off,
    And be on its way to God.
