Barbara Ann Taggart Perrine
1941 ~ 2020

Barbara sadly passed away at the age of 79 on October 30, 2020 in Irvine, California from pneumonia.

She was born in Detroit Michigan on February 10, 1941 to Ann and Douglas Marshall. After graduating from Newark High School where she met her first husband. Barbara married Ronald Edwin Taggart (deceased 1978) and had three children Randall, Matthew and Erin. She remarried in 1995 to George Aldin Perrine from whom she gained three stepchildren Richard, William and Suzanne. Combined from both marriages she has six wonderful grandchildren and one great-grandchild (Loren, Haley, Elaine, Rachel, Natalie, Max and Miles). She was also a loving sister to Debbie Baker and her nieces Shannon and Kelsey.

For many years her passion was to play bridge. Barbara became a Life Master in bridge but mostly enjoyed it because of the great friends she met while playing. She was generous, artistic and sassy: never a dull moment. She spent most of her life making sure her family had everything they needed.

Having overcome so many illnesses, she seemed invincible. Never letting much stop her, she would get out of the hospital and on the way home ask to go shopping. Shopping was another one of her favorite hobbies. She could never pass up a sale.

Her husband George always said she was an “All American Cook that could create desserts and dishes like none other”. Barbara had some great recipes that will be enjoyed by her family for years to come.

Unfortunately we are unable to have a service or celebration of life at this moment but plan to take her back to Newark Ohio to be buried at Cedar Hill Cemetery sometime in 2021.

Always loved and never forgotten.

  1. “Mama” Barb was smart, funny and generous. She was always concerned about her family’s well being, and loved her children more than anything else in the world. I will miss her quick wit, and her ability to answer Jeopardy questions correctly! Rest in peace Barb, we will miss you.

    She loved her kids. She pulled no punches.

  3. Barb and I were friends for so long, I cannot remember when we first met. It must have been at a bridge game. She loved to play bridge and we had so many laughs about the stupid things we did or did not do. I know how much she loved to shop. When I broke my ankle she did not hesitate to bring me food and push me around the shops in a wheel chair..
    She loved her family and worried about them all the time..
    My niece Christine loved Barb and Barb loved her. Christine is high functioning special needs as far as speech goes..
    Whenever we were together they would say they loved each other and Christine would say I like you Aunt Lil and giggle. I could seldom get an I love you from her when Barb was around. I love  you Barb and will miss you.Christine loves you and will miss you so much and Snoopy too!

  4. There was a strength of spirit in Barb that was something you felt if you knew her. She had this fierceness that allowed her to love with such intensity (both humans and pets) to think so quickly and sharply, and to care with that same intensity. . I have many childhood memories of my mom and Barb and the closeness they shared. Even though she was a cousin, I always felt more like she was my aunt. I remember when I went through rough times in my life health-wise, Barb was there as a support and listener. For two years, I took this job that had me driving back and forth through the whole state of Colorado. Twice a week on my long drives for almost the entire two years, Barb and I talked for a good part of my drive, just about everything and anything. She helped me stay awake and help me get through tough long days. I hope she and my mom and Aunt Martha are playing cards and having a toast and laughter together.

    Barbara was always a kick. She was a dynamic friend who inspired the artistic ambitions of many. I always looked forward to seeing her at family occasions.
    Peace be with her.
