Barbara Louise Oliver was born February 4, 1960 in Campbell, CA to Elden and Mary McFeron. She was raised in Campbell where she attended grade school and met long life friends until her family relocated to Del Norte County in 1971. Eventually, made their home in Smith River, CA where Barbara continued to go to school and excelled in all she did.
Barbara excitedly welcomed her son DJ in June of 1978 and her daughter Jennifer in August 1979. Her children were the light of her life and she strived to always do her best to make the best life for the three of them until she met her husband Jake and his two boys Jakie and Arley in 1992. After realizing they were soul mates, they relocated their family to Brookings, Oregon. In 1998, Jake and Barbara decided it was time to start a new journey when they moved the family to Utah. In 2003, it was decided it was time to move home to be close to their parents and family.
Barbara loved the outdoors…camping, tanning and being with her family is what she loved! Anyone who knew her, knew of her love for her family, the color purple, butterflies and most of all, her true love…her grandbabies something she had wanted most of her life.
In 2009, Barbara started a new adventure of helping people through Redwood Medical, where she worked and built bonds and relationships with all she came in contact with. The family she found at Redwood Medical is the most loving and caring group of people who she will forever hold dear in her heart as well as her family.
She will be truly missed by all not only in her family but this community as a whole. Barbara was someone that could be confided in and would always be there with a helping hand with no judgement attached. She was truly a person who loved helping all people.
Barbara passed away comfortably in her home surrounded by her closest friends and loved ones on October 24, 2019 after fighting a long road of cancer. She was such an amazing wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and friend and will truly be missed by all.
Barbara is survived by her husband Jake Oliver, father Eldon McFeron, siblings Don and Dawn McFeron, Terri Williams, son and daughter in law DJ & Tiffani Oliver, daughter Jennifer Oliver, son and daughter in law Jakie and Nicole Oliver and son Arley Oliver.
