Barbara Jo Dobbs, age 72, of New Tazewell, TN was born June 4, 1950 and went to her Heavenly home on Friday, April 28, 2023.

Barb enjoyed cooking for her family and friends and making time to sit down and enjoy the meal with them. She would also cook for anyone who showed up for a visit. Making sure they had a full stomach before they left her house was her way of showing she cared. Barb was a seamstress most of her life and made many quilts that she would gift to those she loved. She had two grandsons that she let everyone know were her pride and joy, she enjoyed nothing more than getting to spend time with them. Barb was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and friend; she will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

She is preceded in death by her parents Otis and Margaret Young, husband of 48 years Dennis Dobbs, brother Buddy Young, sister Delores Roark, and brothers-in-law Russell Roark and Dale Dobbs.
