Barbara Haines

Barbara Jo (Kerr) Haines, age 94, passed away peacefully in the presence of her family, on Wednesday, September 7, 2022, in Charlotte Michigan.
Barbara was born August 12, 1928, in Akron, Ohio, to George Earl Kerr and Elizabeth (Morrison) Kerr. She graduated from high school in Jackson, MI, and married Dwight “Pete” Haines in 1952, and they made their home in Charlotte, raising two sons. She lived the rest of her life in Charlotte.
Barb had an infectious laugh, and was delighted by her grandchildren, and even her “grand-dogs!” She enjoyed Christian devotions and keeping up with the news. She loved to tell the story about she and Pete meeting “Lady Bird” Johnson at the Johnson family ranch in Texas, while on one of their trips out west. Another fond memory was when they attended the Supremes final concert in Detroit. In addition, they enjoyed trips to visit family.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Pete, in 2006, after 53 years of marriage; brother, Charles, in 1989. She is survived by her sons, James (Linda) Williams of Lansing, MI and Paul (Kathleen) Williams of Prescott, AZ; her two grandchildren, Andrew (Brittany) Williams of Peoria, AZ, and Kimberly Williams of Colorado Springs, CO; three great grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Per Barbara’s wishes, no service will be held. Arrangements were handled by Pray Funeral Home in Charlotte. Donations may be made in Barb’s memory to the Lawrence Avenue United Methodist Church, in Charlotte.
