Barbara Middleton Obituary

Barbara Ann Middleton (Whitacre), beloved mother, grandmother, and sister passed away on October 16, 2023 at University of Toledo Medical Center. She was born in McComb, Ohio, on November 27, 1948, to the late J. Wayne and Dortha Belle (Sterling) Whitacre.

Barb dedicated her life to the nursing profession. Her former co-workers say that she was the best nurse they had ever worked with. Barb always went above and beyond to make sure her patients had with they needed. Even at the facility where she was currently living, she had her son bring a specific soda to another resident because she didn't have any. Barb's impact on the lives she touched will forever be remembered.

Barbara is survived by her son, Robert Middleton; her cherished daughter-in-law, Kathy Middleton; her grandchildren, Jonathan, Brooke, and Megan; sister, Mary (Donald) Genalo; brothers, Jack (Betty) Whitacre, and Daniel (Diane) Whitacre; sister-in-law Peggy Whitacre; and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her brother, Michael Whitacre.
