In memory of
Barbara Burks Coleman
COLEMAN, Barbara Burks Barbara Burks Coleman, of Dallas, Texas went to be with her Heavenly Father and her 2 boys on Oct. 20, 2019. She was born on February 2nd, 1937 in El Paso, Texas to Seawillow and J.D. Burks. She grew up in El Paso, Texas and graduated from Texas Western University with a degree in Mathematics. Barbara married the love of her life, Bobby Coleman from Yazoo City, Mississippi, in March of 1958. She worked for Sperry Rand and was a mathmatician for the Sergeant Missile. After becoming a mother she focused her life to raise 3 children, Kevin, Scott and Kellye. Her children were the center of her world. Barbara took great pride in raising her children and was actively involved in every aspect of their lives. When she became a grandmother, Baba as she was known, became the center of their world. Loving, generous, loyal and honest would be her imprint she would leave on her grandkids. Her direct style with a touch of sass and humor always left the grandkids with a smile on their face and a life lesson learned. Baba is preceded in death by her mother, Seawillow Burks, her father, JD Burks and her sons Kevin and Scott Coleman. She is survived by her husband, Bobby Coleman, her daughter and son in law Kellye and Tommy Echols and their daughters Lauren, Alex and Presley. She is also survived by Kevin's children Amber, Blue and Kymberly, Bobbie, Chloe and James Coleman. As well as Scott's child Brianne Coleman. A celebration of Baba's life will be Monday, October 28th at 3:30 at Highland Park Presbyterian Church in Dallas, Texas. The family would appreciate donations to UT Southwestern Harold C. Simmons Cancer Center in lieu of flowers.
