Barbara J. Proffitt Williams

Class of 1959 Paducah High Graduate.

After graduation I lived in the Dallas area for several years, returning to Childress, I went to work in elementary school as Cafeteria Supervisor for six years. I went to work for the Childress Hospital to spend the next 16 years as Dietary Supervisor, receiving my Dietary Manager's certificate from Florida State . After retirement in 2003 I moved to Carlsbad New Mexico for 5 years, returning to Childress in 2007.

My hobbies are bowling, working in the yard and riding motorcycles with Jim.

I was blessed with two great kids, Jeanene Stein who is a cosmetologist and owns her salon in Vernon . Keith who's an electrician and owns his business, Williams Electric in Childress. Four beautiful grandsons. Jarrett who's planning on being an x-ray tech. and Evan who's in AIM program, which is Adventures in Missions. He is in Prato Italy , and two school age boys.

I may not have found fortune and fame or traveled the 7-seas but God gave me two great kids' four beautiful grandsons and the “Love” of my life Jim. I'm happy and content in my life and God has blessed me richly.
