Barbara Faye (Rierson) Beal, age 73, left her earthly home on Tuesday evening, June 12, 2018 in Lubbock, Texas, surrounded by her family. She was born July 12, 1944 in Clovis, New Mexico to Herman and Mary (Shaw) Rierson. Barbara grew up in Bellview, New Mexico and attended Rosedale and Grady schools where she graduated in 1962. Her grandmother taught her to play the pump organ and piano when she was young. She was also known for playing the accordion as well as the Dulcimer. Her love of music showed as she sang and played with her siblings throughout the years. On Father's Day, June 16, 1963 she married Guy H. Beal. Their marriage was blessed with three sons and several homes as they were a proud military family.

Barbara dearly loved her family and those left to honor her are Guy, her beloved husband of 55 years; sons, Bruce and wife Karen Beal of Lubbock, Tim and wife Paula Beal of Gilbert, Arizona; seven grandchildren; eight great grandchildren; sisters, Maurine Thomas, Anita Cain, Joyce Hughes, Carolyn Lake; brother, Jessie Rierson; and many nieces and nephews.
