Barbara Sue Reese, of Mansfield, passed away Wednesday, May 11, 2022, at the age of 66. Maw Maw was a one-of-a-kind woman. She was full of love and loved unconditionally.

She loved the mountains and spending time outside. Spending time with her family was her top priority. In her free time, she loved TikTok, watching mukbangs, and Netflix. She believed in God and very much enjoyed her spiritual journey with crystals. But best of all, she was OUR MAW MAW
