Barbara East Osborn, 84, of Clayton, AL died peacefully while at Medical Center, Barbour County, AL on Thursday, April 13, 2023 surrounded by loved ones.

Mrs. Osborn was born June 10, 1938 in Columbus, GA daughter of the late Mercer East and Marjorie Dudley East. She was a former member of First United Methodist Church, Phenix City, AL. Ms. Barbara loved to fish, especially for bass, and was extremely good at this. She also enjoyed crocheting, gardening, but most of all raising children. Ms. Barbara helped to raise at least three generations of her family and was quick to help other families in need of assistance. We will remember her as a loving wife, sister, mother and grandmother. Thank you for all of the love, discipline and advice you so freely gave to all.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Mercer and Marjorie East and husband of 57 years, Oscar Lee “Sonny” Osborn; three grandchildren, Marshal Starr Osborn, Crystal Marrie Osborn and Taylor Osborn.

The family would like to say a special thank you to the Doctors, nurses and team at Barbour Medical Center for their superior care and compassion. A special thank you is also extended to Steve Whitehead for the sweet prayer he prayed with our family right before our sweet Memaw stepped into eternity.
