Barbara Sue (Peters) Lomax, 78, Osborne, was born September 17, 1943 in Downs, Kansas to Preston and Evelyn Peters. She passed away Friday April 1, 2022 at the Osborne County Memorial Hospital in Osborne, Kansas.
Barbara graduated from Downs High School in 1961 and then moved to Salina to attend Academy of Hair Design. She spent years as a cosmetologist where she enjoyed conversation with her clientele. Barbara also spent years caring for people in the nursing home and hospital in Osborne as a CNA/CMA and also served as a para- professional at the high school and grade school in Osborne.
She married her husband John Lomax April 22, 1967 in Beloit, Kansas. John and Barbara lived in both Cawker City and Osborne where they raised their children.
Barbara enjoyed “cruising” around in Osborne and the surrounding area, gardening, discussing politics, playing cards and games, and spending time with family, friends, and grandchildren. She will be remembered for her laugh, her sense of humor, and stubborn, yet passionate soul.
