Barbara was born April 29, 1929 in Lawton Oklahoma to Ethel and Ernest Coombs. She grew up in Lawton and graduated from Lawton High School.
She married Sam E. Hearn on December 24, 1949. After a brief stay in Texas the couple established a home in rural Cache. Barbara lived there most of her life.
Barbara and Sam founded and operated Blue Beaver Kennels. Barbara worked for many years at Great Plains Veterinary hospital. She along with her husband and son Steve opened Hearn’s Grooming and Pet Supply. She continued to operate Hearn’s alone for many years after the death of husband.
Barbara so loved talking by phone to her dearest of all friends Rhonda Norris every day and before and after every OKC Thunder game. They loved each other so much. With the help of Rhonda’s entire family, she would get to visit Rhonda every few months in Lawton where she got to see family and friends.
Barbara was absolutely passionate about music. She loved to dance (anytime, anywhere). Barbara raised and showed German shepherds for many years. She was an avid horseback rider. Barbara thoroughly enjoyed the cats and dogs she had as pets throughout her life. She adored her OU Sooners but pulled for the pokes as well.
Barbara had a lifelong love for reading. She enjoyed everything from the classics to the bible. Barbara particularly liked mysteries which she almost always solved with the assistance of her dear friend Rhonda, (as they often read books together) and especially loved to read anything pertaining to nature and animals.
