Barbara Lynn Hamrick, 72, started her journey with Jesus on Wednesday, January 6, 2021.
She was a lifelong resident of Peru, born on April 2, 1948 to Edna Gano and Lawrence (Peck) Gano. She married her high school sweet heart, Tim Hamrick of Peru, on April 2, 1967. He preceded her in death on September 19, 2008. Tim and Barb were married for 41 years that were full of love and joy. Barbara has two children, Tim (Candy) Hamrick of Kokomo, IN and Heather (Cliff) Helvie of Peru, IN. Her grandchildren were the light of her life. They are Kindra (Logan), Mallory (Samantha), Noah and Ryan. Barb would love to play games with her babies, as she would always address them, and the kids would always say that grandma would teach them how to cheat. Also she loved cross stitching, quilting and camping. Barb had 4 siblings: Mitzie Chisom, Norma Harmon, Dave Eisemmenger (deceased) and Joyce Ray.
Barb worked for the Peru Township Trustees, Trelleborg Automotive, and St. Johns Daycare.
