Barbara  Dabbs

Barbara Sudderth Dabbs, of Dunwoody, Georgia, passed away on October 13, 2020. An Atlanta native, Barbara was a near 50-year resident of Dunwoody and took great pride in living in and supporting the community she dearly loved. Affectionately known as Babsie by not only her three beloved grandchildren but family and friends alike, she was an incredibly special and beautiful lady. From being crowned the first homecoming queen at Osborne High School in Marietta, Georgia, to raising her two children and playing a pivotal role in raising her grandchildren, she conducted herself with grace, dignity, and class. Family was truly everything to Babsie and she always ensured her family felt loved and special. She could be a force to be reckoned with as she was fiercely loyal and supportive of those she loved. She enjoyed traveling, reading, spending time with family and friends and was always ready for an adventure. Barbara lit up every room she entered and never met a stranger. "The fabric of Babsie" had many vibrant colors that wove together to make her a unique, strong, compassionate, loving and intelligent woman who will be missed every day by many. Barbara was preceded in death by husband Larry; son Tom and parents Bill and Hallie Sudderth. She is survived by her daughter Lisa Cronin of Atlanta; grandson Trey Dabbs of Marina Del Ray, California; granddaughter Morgan Cronin of Atlanta and Craig Cronin of Atlanta. She is also survived by brother and sister-in-law, Bill and Judy Sudderth of Macon, Georgia, and numerous other loving family members. Due to the current circumstances, there will be a graveside ceremony for immediate family only. The family plans a future event to celebrate and honor Barbara. In lieu of flowers, the family request donations be made, in her honor, to the American Cancer Society, in support of Pancreatic Cancer or to PSC Partners, in support of Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis. Carmichael Funeral Home in Smyrna is in charge of arrangements. 770-435-4467
