Mrs. Barbara Ann Sain Hellard, 86, formerly of Will Boone Road, Mocksville, died Tuesday, Dec. 5, 2023 at Mocksville Senior Living.

She was born on June 14, 1937 in Rowan County to the late Ernest Everette and Bessie Belle Call Sain.

Barbara was a member of Turrentine Baptist Church where she sang in the choir and was always a strong believer in God and was the example of what a godly woman should be. She loved gardening and enjoyed the simple things in life like sitting on the porch while watching the hummingbirds. She always had a quick witted joke and a smile. To know her was to love her and she always was so joyful and sweet. Through every trial in her life, she was joyful through it all, and full of life. She was very loved and will be greatly missed.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by: her husband, Fred Gray Hellard; 3 sons, an infant, Timothy Hellard, Dickie Hellard, and Kenny Hellard; and siblings, Faye Hinkle Danby, James Everette Sain, and Nellie Davis.

Survivors include: her daughter-in-law, Cindi Hendrix Hellard of Statesville; her granddaughter, Morgan Lee Hellard; and several nieces and nephews.

A funeral service was conducted at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 10 at Eaton Funeral Chapel with Rev. Fred Carlton officiating. Interment followed in Turrentine Baptist Church Cemetery. The family received friends one hour prior to the service at the funeral home.
