Barbara Ann Linton Schreiner


Barbara Ann Linton Schreiner, 75, of Greenwood, was welcomed to the Kingdom of Heaven on Saturday, April 9, 2016.

She passed away peacefully at St. Francis Hospital, surrounded and comforted by her entire family that she loved so very much.

Barbara was born Sept. 8, 1940, in Indianapolis, to her proud father and mother, Ray and Bernice Linton, who have preceded her in death.

She was a 1958 graduate of Arsenal Technical High School.

She was united in marriage to her loving husband, Kenneth Woodrow Schreiner, who survives.

Other survivors include her children, Tia (Mark) Heaver, Brian (Lynn) Schreiner, Eric (Kammy) Schreiner and Maleah (Jon) Helton; her brother, Ray (Rita) Linton Jr.; and nine precious grandchildren.

Barbara was a devoted Christian living her life as an example of Jesus Christ. She had a heart for prayer and of gratitude and was a long time member of Greenwood Christian Church.

Barbara had a long career as a manager of Home Interiors, during which time she was able to positively touch the lives of hundreds of people with her Christian faith and her positive outlook on life.

Her dedication and focus on perfection in her work allowed her to achieve excellence. Among her many accomplishments, she was recognized by her employer as number one manager in the nation.

However, Barbara’s first passion was her family. Her real career was to raise four wonderful children instilling her faith into each one. Barbara enjoyed nothing more than spending time with family, especially her nine grandchildren.

The family, and all who knew Barbara, will no doubt miss the loving hugs she gave at the beginning and end of each and every visit. Barbie will be mourned by all those lives she has touched.

Visitation will be 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Greenwood Christian Church, 2045 Averitt Road, Greenwood, and 9:30 a.m. until the time of service at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, with Pastor Shan Rutherford officiating. Memorial contributions may be made to Greenwood Christian Church.

Final care and arrangements are entrusted to Shirley Brothers Thompson Road Chapel.
