Mable A. (Barkley) Meador

Mable Alice (Barkley) Meador, 91, of Batesville, passed away on Sunday, September 5, 2021. She was born to her parents, Francis and Fern (Martin) Barkley, on March 26, 1930 in New Point.

After graduating from New Point High School, Mable went on to marry her husband, Rufus B. Meador, who preceded her in death. As a woman of many talents, she particularly enjoyed crocheting, gardening, and embroidering. Mable loved being out in the sun more than anything, though. Even in the last several years, she always looked forward to being able to sit in the sun to tan. Being a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother are just a few of the things Mable will be remembered as.

Mable will be dearly missed by her daughters, Jackie Lynn Pittman (Terry) and Janet Sue Crosby (Mark); grandchildren, Michelle Branson, Janelle Pittman, Daniell Thomas, and Morgan Gardner; great grandchildren, Tanner and Gracie Branson, Carleen and Cameron Medsker, Huntley, Hazley, and Hennley Watson, and Weston Lee Gardner; and son-in-law Charles Coots.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Rufus Meador; daughter, Juanita Jo Coots; infant son, Jimmy Meador; parents, Francis and Fern (Martin) Barkley; sisters, Mary Obertate, Mae Baughman, Margaret Daugherty, and Maxine Obertate.

Visitation will be held for family and friends from 12:00 P.M. to 1:00 P.M. on Thursday, September 9, 2021 followed by funeral services beginning at 1:00 P.M all at Meyers Funeral Home. Burial will follow at Rossburg Cemetery in New Point.
