Obituary for Rebecca "Becky" Barlow (Bolick)
Becky Barlow, age 68, of Granite Falls went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Wednesday, November 22, 2017 at Caldwell Hospice and Palliative Care in Hudson. She was born
August 15, 1949 and was the daughter of the late Adrian A. Bolick and Geneva Drum Bolick
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her loving husband, Larry Barlow and
one brother, Danny Bolick.
Becky was the former Director of South Caldwell Christian Ministries and was instrumental in serving the needy in southern Caldwell County. In 1982, Becky joined about 50 citizens and 18 churches from the community to form South Caldwell Christian Ministries. As the first Director of SCCM, she was an integral part of its growth; from the original store front on North Main Street, to the purchase of the house on Duke Street and now to our present location on Quarry Road all in Granite Falls. While the locations have changed, Becky made sure that the mission to be there for families in a time of crisis did not change. She made sure the mission continued to be to serve the needy in southern Caldwell County. Becky and her husband Larry were always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone in need and she taught her children and grandchildren how to “give back” through their volunteer work at SCCM. What a shining example she has been to so many.
A quote from the SCCM brochure says what Becky believed and how she lived her life. This is her legacy to this community…
“The Lord has been faithful. He has supplied our (SCCM) every need through a community of believers who have given so generously of their money, goods and time to serve others. We thank you for all you have done for us and ask for your continued support as we continue the work,”
Those left to cherish her memory are one son, David Barlow and wife D’etta of Granite Falls; one daughter, Lisa Barlow Yun and husband Kenny of Granite Falls; grandchildren, Adrian Barlow, Macie Barlow, Mollie Barlow, Madison Phillips, Abbie Barlow, Annie Barlow, Kristen Yun, Abby Yun and a great-grandchild, Waylon Barlow.
The family will receive friends on Sunday, November 26, 2017 from 2:00-3:00 PM at Philadelphia Lutheran Church in Granite Falls and the funeral service will follow at 3:00 PM officiated by Rev. Diane Cline and Rev. Tom Hunter. Burial will be at Cedar Rock Church Cemetery in Lenoir.
