Barbara L.P. Bonds, 86, died peacefully in her home surrounded by her family on Nov. 26, 2016.

She was born in Washington, D.C., lived in many places as the military wife of Billy R. Bonds (deceased), then settled in Virginia Beach in 1960.

She was a creative person who loved flowers, watching the birds and painting — winning awards for her watercolors.

Barbara is survived by her four children, Patricia, Brenda, Virginia and Steven. Left also to cherish her memory are her two brothers, one sister, seven grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.

A celebration of life service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3, at Frances Asbury Methodist Church, 1871 N. Great Neck Road, Virginia Beach.
