Barbara Adell Horne, 77, of Waco, passed away Monday, May 13, 2019. Graveside services will be held at 10 am on Friday, May 17 at Rosemound Cemetery with Rev. Roy Marshall officiating.
Barbara was born July 22, 1941 in Dallas, Texas to Buford and Myrtice (Masters) Watson and raised in Waco. She attended local schools and worked at several businesses in the area, including Finger Furniture, National Transport & Revolutionary with her brother, and also for many years at Holiday Inn and other hotel/motel chains as a desk clerk, hostess, waitress and housekeeping manager.
Barbara enjoyed organizing special holiday events for the residents at the apartment complex she lived in. She was very crafty and loved making beautiful Christmas bows and floral arrangements. She was so talented that she could actually construct a Halloween costume with nothing but a glue gun and some Velcro!
She was preceded in death by her parents; son, Duane L. Horne, Jr.; grandson, Cody L. Sparks; and brother, Buford Clinton Watson Jr.
Barbara leaves behind to cherish her memory her daughter, Angela Sparks and husband, Floyd; granddaughters, Melinda Ardoin and husband, Sean and Candice Wheeler and husband, Brent; great grandchildren, Shelby Felder, Noah, Haley and Abby Wheeler and Ashley Sosa; aunt, Doris Masters Truitt; nieces, Sonia Young and Terry Watson; nephews, Douglas Watson, Roger Watson and Ronnie Watson; and numerous cousins.

My condolences to the Horne family. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of dear Barbara. Some Bible scriptures that have helped me during times of loss include Isaiah 26:19 and Psalm 37:28,29 which states in part: "Your dead ones will live...They will rise up". And the Bible also says "The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will forever reside upon it". Therefore the Bible promises that we may be reunited with our loved ones lost in death by means of an earthly resurrection. This is further confirmed by John 5:28,29 which says "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ's ransom sacrifice. Thus we have a genuine hope of everlasting life in a world without wickedness or suffering.
