Barbara Rose Wimpy
Barbara Rose (Reynolds) Wimpy, 75, went to be with her Lord and Savior on November 28, 2023 in Newport, Washington. Barbara had celebrated her 75th birthday the previous month and left suddenly due to a cardiac event.
Barbara was born on October 25, 1948 in Seattle, Washington to Richard E. Reynolds and Sheila (Thompson) Reynolds. She spent most of her childhood and early adult years in the Bay Area in California and lived the remainder of her days throughout Washington state. Barbara had an analytical mind and a talent for thinking through complex problems. She worked in the banking, real estate, and mortgage lending industries, but her real passions and hobbies were found in the arts. She loved drawing her own house plans, dancing, and photography.
Barbara married Paul Wimpy on December 12, 2013 in Las Vegas, NV. They met the year prior and immediately got to work enjoying life together. They traveled, attended music shows, and spent time having fun with their community of friends. Barbara was an outgoing person, who always made friends wherever she went. Shortly after their wedding, Barbara retired from the mortgage business and set to work on designing their dream retirement home, built in Diamond Lake in 2015. Two years later, Barbara received a cancer diagnosis, which she battled and won. In April 2021, she suffered a stroke that she was unable to fully recover from.
Barbara is survived by her husband Paul, daughters Jennifer and Stephanie, brothers Jim, Rick, and Steve, sisters Debbie and Jeanne, grandchildren Colby, Mike, Matt, Haven, Brennan, Cassidy, Ailysse, Levi, Mallory, and Alexa, one great-grandchild, Milo, and several nieces, nephews, and extended family.
Barbara is preceded in death by her father, mother, and son, Johnny.
The service for Mrs. Barbara Wimpy will be held on December 3, 2023, at 12pm at Sunset Memorial Gardens, 915 By Pass Hwy, Richland, WA 99352.
Memorial donations can be made in Barbara’s name to the Tri-Cities Cancer Center in Kennewick, WA.
Paul, I am so sorry for your loss.
Missed you when you moved from Castro Valley. Facebook kept us in touch. I am happy that she and Paul found each other and shared the life she always wanted❣️
Dear Auntie Barb,
What can I say? I love you dearly and will miss you terribly. Your strict but caring but caring nature, your love for dancing and family. The time I burnt my leg with Top Ramen and you took me in to a week. All of that and more. I will miss your laugh, your sarcasm and your perfume will be forever etched in my memory. Shine bright Auntie Barb for you truly are the matriarch of the family and somebody has big shoes to fill.
Steve, Larissa and family. Our hearts go out to you in this difficult time. Please know that you will be in our thoughts and prayers daily. John and Joia Natale
I am so sorry for Paul and my nieces and nephews. I love you all. I love you sister Barbara. You always will have a special place in my heart.
Paul, Jerry and I are so very sorry for your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
You made it🙏🏼😇. To God’s most beautiful place. No more pain. He took all your struggles and lifted you by His right hand. Love always🥰
Our deepest sympathy in this sad time. Barb was a wonderful woman and will be missed by many.
I’m deeply saddened, to hear of Barbara’s passing. She was fun loving, compassionate and extremely, talented. The home she designed for Paul and herself is proof of that. I know, the design was driven by her desire to entertain her large family along with many friends. We will all miss her smile and laughter.
Barbara, we miss you already. Thanks for all the wonderful times at the lake watching the sunsets & cruising the lake. You and Paul made a great couple, so glad you found each other and enriched your lives.
