October 3, 1940 - August 21, 2021
Barbara N. Stribling, 80, of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, passed away peacefully on Saturday, August 21, 2021, at The Chateau in Cape Girardeau. She was born October 3, 1940, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, to Hershel and LaVaughn (Anderson) Beauchamp. Barb dedicated her life to helping others through her work as a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW). During her professional career, she worked for the State of Missouri, the Community Counseling Center, the Gibson Center, and had her own private practice, as well. She had a great love for all living things—people and animals alike. During her lifetime, she provided a loving home to many rescue animals, and was a passionate supporter of the local Humane Society. Barb will be remembered for many things—including her ‘deep as the ocean’ blue eyes, generosity of heart, quick wit, and ineffable sense of humor. She led a life guided by her deep and abiding faith in God. While Barb will be deeply missed, she will live on in the hearts of all who knew and loved her, and will be fondly remembered for her countless acts of loving generosity. Barbara was preceded in death by her parents and by her partner of many years, Alice Temm. She is survived by her son, Thomas A. Stribling of Fairview Heights, Illinois; and by other close friends and family. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, September 4, 2021, at 11:30 a.m. at Crain Funeral Home in Cape Girardeau. Friends and family may call at 11:00 a.m. for visitation. She will be interred beside her beloved mother at Bell Cemetery, Siloam Springs, Arkansas. In lieu of flowers and as a lasting tribute to Barb, donations may be made to: Humane Society of Southeast Missouri, 2536 Boutin Dr., Cape Girardeau, Missouri 63701 or to the American Stroke Association (www.stroke.com). Crain Funeral Home in Cape Girardeau in charge of arrangements.
