Burial will be in the Metcalfe County Memorial Gardens on Greensburg RD, Edmonton, KY. The family requests visitation at the funeral home on Monday, May 9, 2010, from 4:30pm to 8pmCT.

She was the daughter of the late William Robert and Mary Pedigo, and wife of the late Bobbie Rhea Carter, all of Edmonton, KY.

She was a dedicated wife to her career military husband and followed Bobbie on his various assignments around the country. They retired to Shively, KY, a suburb of Louisville, KY, in 1975. In 2007, Barbara moved to Gurnee, IL, to be near her only daughter, Janie.

She is survived by her beloved daughter and son-in-law, Janie Carter Ward and Mark Ward of Grayslake, IL. Survivors also include her brother Robert Willliams (Skipper) Pedigo and wife Cindy, six nieces and nephews, numerous cousins, and two aunts.
Before her illness, Barbara was an avid tennis player, loved to walk, and she was always up for a game of Canasta or Scrabble. Although she left neighborhood friends of 25 years, Barbara flourished at her new home in Gurnee Meadows, where she made many friends. She enjoyed singing in the Meadow Larks on Sunday evenings. Barbara spent her life caring for those around her and cherished her family and friends.

Memorial donations may be made in Barbara's name to the Pedigo Spring Park, City of Edmonton, KY.
