Barbara Lynn Burns Reeves
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
This is a Memorial Newsletter which was backlogged from when the web site was
non-updatable. The news
of Barbara's death, while no longer fresh, somehow seems to remain just as painful.
From Chip Clark ('65) of Northern VA - 08/08/05:
...welcome back to the web!...
I don't know if you got this notice....I sent it several months ago and got no response.
I found Barbara Burns, but not the way I had hoped. I Googled her name, and got an obituary...
|Barbara Lynn Burns|
|Fall of 1964|
Bowie woman killed in one-vehicle accident
April 30, 2005
BOWIE (Special) - A Bowie woman was killed and her mother seriously injured in a one-vehicle accident south
of Bowie on U.S. 287 Friday morning.
The accident occurred at 10:30 a.m. just before the Lawhorn exit on U.S. 287, approximately six miles from Bowie.
Department of Public Safety
Trooper Mark Coonce said Jennifer Robin Reeves was northbound on U.S. 287 in a
GMC Jimmy. The preliminary investigation indicates she overcorrected and went across the bar ditch on the right
side of the road. The vehicle overturned, slid across the service road, and turned over in the bar ditch.
The driver was ejected from the
vehicle. Justice of the Peace Jim Willard pronounced the 32-year-old driver dead
at the scene. Her passenger, Jennifer Reeves' mother, Barbara Lynn Reeves, 57, had to be removed from the
vehicle. She was flown to Harris Hospital.

Words by John Newton 1779
Amazing grace! (how sweet
That sav'd a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears reliev'd;
How precious did that grace appear,
The hour I first believ'd!
Thro' many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
The Lord has promis'd good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.
Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who call'd me here below,
Will be forever mine.
