Obituary of Sally Jean Barber

Sally Dillon Barber, 62, of Columbia, went to be with our Heavenly Father on December 8, 2019 at her home, in the arms of her devoted husband of 42 years.  She suffered a courageous battle with Alzheimer’s for numerous years, but never gave up that tremendous, contagious smile and laughter.  She was the most devoted daughter, wife, mother, sister, aunt and friend anyone had the pleasure of experiencing. 

She was able to touch many lives through her photos; by capturing the laughter, smiles and innocence of children, engagements, weddings, and so many other functions through their business, Barber Photography. She could get the subjects to laugh or smile by her silliness and sayings. For her children’s pictures, there wasn’t anything she wouldn’t do to capture the “teeth”.  She said, “if ya didn’t capture their teeth, the photographer wasn’t doing their job”. To her brides she said,”men are men, and women are women, and as long as they don’t hurt you, stay with them!”

She is survived by her loving husband, David Barber; devoted daughter, Jessica Barber; four brothers, Sonny Dillon (Meida), Jimmy Dillon (Jane), Donnie Dillon (Lynn), Ray Dillon; Peggy Dillon; many nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews.  Sally was predeceased by her father, Eugene Q. Dillon and her mother, Edith Koon Dillon. 

Sally was a long time member of Trinity Baptist in Cayce, South Carolina.
