Obituary for Barbara W Shattuck

Barbara Worley Shattuck, 81, died peacefully at UT Medical Center on Thursday, January 5, 2017, after a brief illness. She was born on September 19, 1935, in Lynchburg, Virginia.

She is survived by her husband, Tom; her children: David, Keely and Pete; her brother, Robert, and her grandchildren: Martha, Evan, Kristin, Sophie and Noah.

As a young woman, she earned college degrees in home economics and English, and taught in the Middlesboro school system. She then started her own business, The Cross Stitch Connection. She was a talented homemaker and seamstress, and was successful in the catering business. Barbara was very active in the community, volunteering in countless roles, most prominently as member of the Bell County Historical Society, the Middlesborough Garden Club, and in ongoing efforts to promote tourism and downtown revitalization. In her later years, she and husband Tom often enjoyed the solitude of her family home in Virginia. Interment will be in her family plot in Virginia.
