Born in Hoboken, New Jersey, Lee Ann was a devout Catholic, devoted wife, and extraordinary mother. She was married to Lawrence "Larry" Barbour for 61 years, and is survived by him; four wonderful daughters, Susan Barbour, Diana Holford (Jack), Sharon Petrecca (Greg), and Laura Barbour; four grandchildren; three surviving brothers; Patrick Caulfield (Cathy), James Caulfield (Kathy), Joseph Caulfield (Rose); and countless extended family and friends.
She loved sunshine, hot weather, and a frozen margarita, making Austin the perfect place for her. Our mother loved being a part of the Austin community, including St. John Neumann, Austin Newcomers, Dining Duos, Barton Creek Country Club, the Austin Children's Shelter, and numerous bridge groups, bible studies, and book clubs. Lee Ann served on the board and as a greeter for the 8212 Club. She excelled at making people feel welcome, and we know she is happily doing that now in Heaven.
