BARBARA ANN ISABELL KING KELLAR, 70, of Eastland,
TX passed from this life on March 16, 2018 at home
surrounded by her loving family, with burial at
Evergreen Cemetery in Ranger, TX.
Barbara was born May 15, 1947 in Ranger to Charles
& Lela Mae Bowen Isabell. She grew up in Ranger
and has spent her whole life a resident of Eastland
County. Barbara attended Ranger High School in the
Class of 1965 at Ranger. She married Joe Howard
King in 1965 and he preceded her in death in 1990.
She then married Clinton Kellar in Carbon, TX in 1997.
He preceded her in death in 2011. Her final years were
spent with special friend, Kent Davis, whom she adored.
She worked hard all her life, as a farmer/rancher,
driver for Purolator Courier Service, and at Greer’s
Barbara was an accomplished artist who loved to travel.
She was the type of lady who if you just showed up to
visit would soon whip up something to eat just in case
you were hungry and she did love company. She loved
animals of all kinds and if they showed up on her porch
or in her yard she was going to feed them also. She has
raised rabbits, raccoons, skunks, squirrels, and hand
fed birds. As a child living in Ranger, she even had an
alligator! Barbara was a very independent lady who was
a fighter, as evident during her battle with cancer.
She is survived by her three sons: Joe Howard King,
III, and companion Amber Rouse of Lake Leon, James
Ray King and wife Sharon of Cisco, Justin Wade King
and wife Pam of Stephenville, step-sons, Bryan Kellar
and wife Angela of Morton Valley, and Michael Kellar
and wife Erin of Springtown; numerous grandchildren
and one great-grandchild.
Barbara is preceded in death by her parents, & husbands:
Joe King, Jr. and Clinton Kellar.
