Barbara J. Tackett, age 71, passed away on Friday, April 20, 2012, at Harford Memorial Hospital, surrounded by her family.

She was predeceased by her daughter, Terry Lynn Edwards; granddaughter, Shannon Foster; brother, Jackie Lucas; and stepmother Clara Lucas.

Service will be held at 2PM on Wednesday, April 25, 2012, at R.T. Foard F.H., 111 S. Queen St., Rising Sun, MD 21911. Friends and family may visit one hour prior to the service. Burial will follow at Brookview Cemetery.
