Delma Barron

July 2, 1951 — March 23, 2023

Mrs. Delma Baker Barron, R.N., born July 2, 1951 in Columbus, Ohio, shook off her mortal coils, leaving this life on Thursday March 23, 2023 at Hickory Hill Retirement Community in Burkeville, VA. Long-time resident of Buckingham County, Delma is the daughter of William R and Edith M Baker of Camp Springs, MD, who proceeded her in death along with her brother Robert (Bob) Baker. Delma is survived by her husband Tom Barron; brothers William (Jody) and Edward (Trish); and sisters Mary (Terry) Pate and Diana (Ray) Depew. Sons Jason (Nita) and William (Ashley) Barron and Austin-Lee Longobardo. Grandchildren; Leia, Merrick, Gianna, Tirzah, Jericho, Kensi, Finley, Sadie, Amaryllis.

Delma completed Nursing School at Lynchburg General Hospital Nursing School and became a Registered Nurse. Nursing is not just what she did, it was who she was. She touched hundreds of lives comforting and caring for each one. We met while I was in the US Navy and she was a nurse at Norfolk General Hospital. We were married on Sept 6, 1975. She was my best friend, my lover, and the Matriarch of our family. She will be sorely missed.

A Memorial Celebration of Her Life will be held at 5:00 PM, Saturday April 8, 2023 at Riverside Community Church; 75 Simpson Road, Prospect, VA. Shorter Funeral Home is serving the family.
