Barbara Jean Breeden, 87, a lifelong Warrenton resident, passed away peacefully on Sunday, October 11, 2020.
She was born June 22, 1933, in Warrenton, to the late Albert Edward Allison (1972) and Ernestine Elizabeth Allison (1975).
Barbara graduated from Warrenton High School in 1951 and went on to work for C&P Telephone, Airlie Foundation as a telephone operator and Fauquier County government as a telephone operator and general information clerk in the courthouse from 1972 to 2003. Many called her “The Voice of Fauquier County” prior to her retirement. In light of her busy schedule, she worked for years as an Avon Representative in the Warrenton area.
Throughout her life, Barbara was an active member in the community by volunteering at the Fauquier Hospital as a Gray Lady, Pink Lady and working in the gift shop. She also helped all those in need by running errands, supplying clothes and food.
Barbara loved to travel throughout the United States seeing all the different landscapes that the country has to offer — from mountains to deserts. She also was an avid reader and enjoyed uplifting stories of family traditions.
All of her life, Barbara found guidance through the Bible and her years attending the Methodist and Baptist churches in Warrenton. She taught her family that there was no problem too large for the Lord — just believe and pray. She will be missed greatly by her family as well as the community.
She is survived by her sons, Darrell Anthony Breeden (wife Linda) of North Las Vegas, Nev., and Michael Scott Breeden (wife Susanne) of Bealeton, and her grandsons, Taylor Michael Breeden of Herndon and Virginia Breeden and Zachary Michael Breeden of Bealeton.
She was preceded in death by eight brothers and sisters, Albert Edward Allison Jr. (1999) of Alexandria, Wallace Gladstone Allison (1979) of Warrenton, Donald Trow Allison (1968) of Waynesboro, Jerry Folk Allison (2000) of Warrenton, Leona Allison Martin (1997) of King George, Frances Allison Cook (1985) of Washington D.C., Mary Ernestine Allison (1999) of Arlington and Helen Rebecca Allison (1981) of Warrenton.
A private graveside services will take place at the Warrenton Cemetery.
