CHESAPEAKE—Barbara June Menefee, 80, died Aug. 22, 2008, in a local hospital.
She was a native of Crestline, Ohio, and was the daughter of the late Eugene and Lydia Fahrion. She had resided in Chesapeake for the last 14 years.
Mrs. Menefee eventually pursued a career managing a periodontal office in Southern California but her first priority was her family, always putting their needs above hers.
She was an incredible wife, mother and friend. Her daughter-in-law became her second daughter and her two grandsons were a source of joy and pride for her.
She enjoyed being around her daughter’s partner (Robert) and joking with him. No matter what the situation was, her family could always count on her complete support and unconditional love.
Her passing has changed their lives forever but the memories she has left them only strengthens their belief in how incredibly lucky they were to have her as their mother and friend.
Survivors include her husband, Andrew Bryan Menefee; her daughter, Theresa Menefee and significant other Robert of Franklin; a son, Dr. Stephen Menefee and wife Diana of Chesapeake; a brother, Gene Fahrion; and two grandchildren, A.J. and Tyler.
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
Sturtevant Funeral Home, Portsmouth Blvd. Chapel is handling arrangements.
