Bettina "Tina" Barr

Bettina Dawn Barr, 49, of Poca, W.Va., went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, October 11, 2018, at her residence following a two-year battle with breast cancer. Not once did she let her struggle discourage her from living life for those surrounding her, always putting others first. She was a wife, mom and warrior and was an inspiration to many, including her friends and family. She has touched more hearts with her shining light and resilience than she could have ever known.
