Barbara Jean (Spear) Muck, 74, of Lawrenceville, Georgia, passed away on Tuesday, June 29, 2021.

She was born to Charles Pershing Spear and Jessie Pearl Spear (Howell), October 24, 1946 in Phenix City, Alabama. She was married to Joseph Muck, III, in 1962. Barbara is survived by three sons, Joseph Muck, IV, wife Suzanne, Thomas Muck, wife Lara, and Daniel Muck; 11 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. Also survived by William Spear, brother, Joan Lambert, sister and Leon Elder, Step-Father.

As a young girl, daughter of the military, Barbara moved around the country with her family, but that did not last long as Barbara met the man she would spend the next 58 years loving and supporting and building a family starting when she was only 15 years old. Working full time and caring for her family full time was her way of life. A stay at home mom in the early years, she volunteered at the local school as a Para-Pro and Library Assistant to be close to her sons. She raised her three boys until 1998, when she joined Barton Executive Search as an Administrative Assistant, eventually working up to Director of Administration. It was a career she took with great pride, with a team she loved. Barbara’s love was only matched by the energy she possessed. She slept little and cared deeply. Her cooking was famous, her recipes straight from her head and made straight from the heart. She fed so many and nourished us all with her love, strength, and energy.

Funeral arrangements are by Wages and Sons Funeral Home at 1031 Lawrenceville Hwy., Lawrenceville, G, 30046. A Memorial Service will be held, Friday, July 9th, from 11AM to 1PM, followed by a service at 1PM in the same location.
