Barbara MacNeill

OTTO - The best wife, mother, grandmother, friend, and role model, Barbara MacNeill, received her wings, Wednesday, Aug. 29, 2018. She has been an inspiration to all that had the privilege of knowing her and will be greatly missed.

Born in New York, New York on Feb. 25, 1923, she was the daughter of the late Bruno Beckhard and Isabel McCormick Beckhard. In addition to her parents, Barbara was preceded in death by her husband, William MacNeill, and her brother, Richard Beckhard.  

She was a lifetime volunteer at Angel Medical Center, a member of the Presbyterian Women’s Club and Extension Homemakers, a founding member of the Otto Garden Club and a volunteer with CarePartners Hospice for eight years.

She is survived by her daughter, Judy Langford (Joe), of Franklin; granddaughter, Paige Krusoe (John), of Highlands Ranch, Colorado; and three great-grandchildren, Abigail, Mitchell and Isabella.

Out of respect for her wishes there will be no formal service.

Memorial donations can be made to CarePartners Hospice, Appalachian Animal Rescue or another charity of your choosing.

Macon Funeral Home is handling the arrangements. Condolences can be made at maconfuneralhome.com.
