Barbara Ann Lott departed this world and went to be with her Lord on Feb. 12, 2013, after a battle with lung cancer-related problems. The candle of life was extinguished on a true believer, a person wholly dedicated to almighty God. Her life was devoted to cultivating her relationship with Jesus Christ and calling on others to surrender to him on a daily basis that the love and power of God would fill them and flow out to others. Barbara will be remembered as an anointed teacher, counselor and evangelist.
Barbara Ann Williamson Lott was born on Jan. 9, 1933, in Flour Bluff, a suburb of Corpus Christi. The family moved to San Angelo, then to Riviera. She loved playing basketball and became the high-point girl on the team.
She married James Lott on March 6, 1953, in Kingsville and they had four children. In 1960 they moved to Jacksonville. In 1972 she and James formed Faith, Hope, and Charity Ministry, and shared the word throughout the U.S. and Mexico. Our God is an awesome God, and we praise him for his working through the ministry.
Barbara, who was known as "Bubbles" by her family, was preceded in death by her parents; her sister, Delma; and her brother, Nard.
Survivors include her husband, James E. Lott of Whitehouse; two sons, Keith Edward Lott of Troup, and Kyle Edwin Lott of Jackson, Wyo.; two daughters, Karen Lynette Lott of Tyler and Kandace Denise Martin of Plano; a sister, Norma Owen of Corpus Christi; eight grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Pallbearers will be Hal Brunt, Jim Ferguson, Hershell Maynard, Joe Tomlin, Mike Lott and Matthew Trlica.
