Barbara was known to everyone as MeMa. She was full of life and lived it to the fullest. She loved Honky-Tokin’, hanging out and having a good time.

Barbara was preceded in passing by her parents, Joseph Beverly & Mary Ellen Apperson; three brothers: JB Apperson, Billy Ray Apperson, and Douglas Apperson; one sister, Louise Apperson, and two granddaughters, Wednesday Yoakum and Dana Rhoades-Hughes; and one daughter-in-law Gwen Reid.
She is survived by her sister, Imogene Hunt of Hobbs; four children: Gary Reid, Randy Reid (Vickie Reid), Sheila Roquemore, and Dianna McCann (David McCann), all of Hobbs; nine grandchildren; seventeen great-grandchildren, eight great-great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.
She will be dearly missed by her family.
