We lost an angel, but Heaven gained one.
Barbara Ann was the best mother to two children and the perfect Meme to three grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. She was known for her loud voice, her fearlessness, and the stories she told.
She was a successful woman in a man's world. She built many businesses in Chandler, including Hull Equipment, a Kubota Tractor dealership, Hull Realty, Hull Storage, and even built the Chandler Post Office. She loved being a part of the community by helping with the Pow-Wow, donating to the Chandler Museum, and handing out Halloween candy.
Barbara loved spending time with family, playing 84 with friends, gardening and watching birds at her house, and taking care of others. She was an avid collector of Precious Moments, Thomas Kinkade paintings, depression glass and her refrigerator was covered in magnets from the places she had traveled.
She is preceded in death by her parents and daughter-in-law, Teresa Hull. She is survived by her son Rodney Hull; son Rex and his wife Kathy Hull; Granddaughter Joy and her husband Brandon Krusz of Staunton, VA; Grandson David Hull; Granddaughter Rebekah Hull; Great-Grandchildren Ethan and Adalyn Krusz.
