Barbara B Dover

of Little Rock, AR, 1932 - 2022

Barbara B. Dover, 90, of Little Rock, died on October 3, 2022. Barbara was born March 5, 1932, in Mena, Ark., to the late Winifred Loyd and Raymond C. Brown, now of Little Rock.
Barbara met her high school sweetheart, Darrell D. Dover, in 1950, and the two were married in the First Methodist Church in Mena on August 15, 1954. They have enjoyed over 54 years of happily married life.
Always an attractive woman, Barbara won the title of "Miss Polk County" in 1947, and followed in 1949 with the title of "Miss Chigger Ridge." Over the years, the second title has been the focus of several family jokes. Those who knew Barbara well will not be surprised to learn that she took this in good stride.
Barbara was extremely well liked and many church members, pastors, committee chairmen, and fellow members have been heard to say that they have never heard an unkind word said about Barbara.
Barbara was active in church affairs, having served many years as Chairman of the Memorial Church Committee and was one of five people who prepared plans for and interior design of the Asbury United Methodist Church's Visitor Center which is still used.
