Remembering Priscilla Lane Barfield

Priscilla Lane Barfield

Graveside Services for Priscilla Lane Barfield, age 83, of Ruston are scheduled for Tuesday, June 27, 2023, 10:00 A.M. at Hamilton Cemetery in Dubach, LA.  Officiating will be Rev. Dale Oden, under the direction of Kilpatrick Funeral Homes of Ruston. 

Priscilla Lane Barfield, or Granny, as she was most widely known, was born January 10, 1940, and passed away peacefully in her home June 25, 2023. She was an active member of First Baptist Church Dubach, until she moved to Ruston in 2000 and joined Temple Baptist Church. She loved to sing and was a permanent fixture in the choir at both churches.

She impacted many people throughout her lifetime, but those she impacted most were her family. She was a true example of strength and love. She never failed to give her all to those she cared about, and she never left room to question how she truly felt.

Many people have said over the years that “you can hear Priscilla from a mile away”, and that was absolutely true. She was always the loudest person in the room, and the loudest person in the church choir. Her voice was recognizable and distinct. Granny has always said, “When I’m dead and gone, you can put ‘I’m through talking now’ on my tombstone.” But for those she left behind, we know her talking has only just begun.

Priscilla is preceded, in death, by her parents, Willie Coy Colvin & Olivia Tyrelle (Carter) Colvin, of Dubach, LA.; her husband, Charles Wayne Barfield; and her daughter, Sherri Barfield Ferrel.

She is survived by her son, Neal Barfield and wife Faith; son-in-law, Greg Ferrel; her grandchildren, Haley Littlepage and husband Chance, Olivia Fitzgerald, Casey Ferrel, Michelle Robinson and husband Justin, and Ashley Ferrel; great grandchildren, Aidan Bryan, Brenton Bryan, Charlee Ward, Ana Morton, Tyler Frost, Oliver Frost, Slater Frost, Adalynn Littlepage, Emory Littlepage, Nash Littlepage; siblings, Gloria Deloney, and Bill Colvin.
