Barbara Jean Larimore Stearman, 89, Green County, KY

She was a farmer at heart and poured her life into her family and the land that she loved. She managed the Stearman Dairy operation as well as working in the tobacco and other aspects of farming along with her husband. Her passion was found in the thousands of photos that she made of her family and their activities during her lifetime. When she was able, she kept her yard and garden immaculate and she always grew beautiful flowers. In her later years, she and James were able to do some traveling, but only after spending a lifetime of farming, raising and educating their six children.
