Barbara Jane Sullivan

Barbara Jane Sullivan, age 69 of Rocky Point, NC passed away on December 18, 2021 at New Hanover Regional Medical Center.

Barbara was born on July 11, 1952 to the late WD & Charlotte Sullivan in Columbus, Ohio during her father’s enlistment in the United States Air Force.

Barbara spent the majority of her career working in underground utilities for WaterPro, HD Supply and the City of Wilmington, among others. She spent the last few years as a delivery driver for Advanced Auto Parts in Wilmington. Barbara touched the hearts of everyone she met. She may not have been easy to get to know, but if you were lucky enough to make it into her close circle you knew she would always be there, no matter what.

    Lord I have to many to list I've spent my entire life with her 41 years. She was absolutely the best mother anyone could ask for sure. everyone has ups and downs but it's not every day that you have a best friend. If I were to rob a bank she would be the getaway driver. No matter what happened she always had my back when I was down she picked me up when she was down I picked her up I'm still somewhat surprised and in shock that she is going to heaven but I can guarantee you she's up there having a ball with her mom and dad she loved everyone she ever met and spent time with she has friends all over the country. And the world definitely lost an angel and heaven gained one more.

    IM so sad to have this news find me on christmas..although I feel she was taking because there are more angels needed to look over and guide the ones today. The world is difficult....not as it was when she blessed the world with her presence 50s.....(what I would give to live then!) THIS LADY was so tough....didn't need a man or or anyone but happiness and family when I was lucky to spend time with her....while installing her drinking water well in Rocky point years ago...Her son Kelly Sellers is a close friend and I will keep my prayers and thoughts close to my heart for you and your children my friends. love- Mike sage

    I had the opportunity to get to know Grandma Bob and it is heartbreaking to hear of her passing. I will always remember her love of Harry Potter and her cooking, especially her gummy rice. You will be missed.
