Obituary

Dallis Ardell Spears Barker was born February 16th, 1925, in Morris, Oklahoma, to Daniel Boone Spears and Minnie Viola Gentry (Spears). The family moved to Mountainburg, Arkansas, where Dallis grew up. She met Clarence Barker, and they were married on May 29th, 1939. The couple moved to Western Oklahoma, where they made their home. In the 1950s, Clarence and Dallis moved their family to Clinton, where they settled for the rest of their lives.

Dallis was preceded in death by her parents, Minnie and Boone Spears, husband Clarence Barker, Siblings GW, Sally, Eugene, Wes Lee, Ellis Nhyle, Danny, Viola, Gladys, Kathline, Edna Mae, Son Eddie Lee Barker, Daughter Ruthie Lee (Barker) Edwards, Grandsons Larry Rollins, Mark Bernard, and Billy Unruh.

She is survived by Daughters Vernie (Barker) Barton of the home and Rosa (Barker) Gross of Sedalia, Missouri, grandchildren Dondi (Magers) Cobb, Troy Magers, Bobbie Unruh, Rena (Unruh) Dalke, Angela Brandes, and many great and great-great-grandchildren, as well as many extended family.

Dallis dedicated her life to taking care of children and loved each one she met. She loved playing wahoo, dominoes, and telling stories about sing-a-longs on her front porch in Arkansas with her dad playing the fiddle. Dallis loved the Lord and wanted people to accept him as their Savior so she could see them all again one day.
