Barbara Ann Munden


Sunrise: November 28, 1945

Sunset: January 30, 2021

Barbara Ann Munden was born November 28, 1945 in Wilmington, North Carolina to the late Lorenzo and Jessie Bell Goganious. After the death of her parents at an early age, Barbara moved to Norfolk, VA, to be raised by her late stepmom, Beulah Keaton and late aunt and uncle, Hattie and Asbury Kindred.

Early Saturday morning, January 30, 2021, God wrapped his arms around Barbara and lifted her into Heaven where she will have no more suffering and pains. In addition to her parents, stepmom, aunt and uncle, she was preceded in death by her son, Kevin Richardson; sister, Geraldine Goganious Ruffin and her brother, Lorenzo Goganious, Jr.

Barbara graduated from Booker T. Washington High School and received a BS Degree in Sociology/Criminal Justice from Norfolk State University. She retired from Norfolk Public Library after 30 years of services as a Youth Specialist. Other than servicing God, her greatest joy came from being with her husband, children and encouraging our youths of today.

Barbara was a phenomenal God-fearing woman, who professed her faith in Jesus Christ at an early age. She was a former member of C.H. Mason Memorial COGIC and New Hope COGIC before joining Angelic COGIC. She remained a dedicated and faithful member throughout the years serving where needed. Barbara was a member of the Missionary Board, Adult Choir and the Organist for the church.

She leaves to cherish her beautiful memories, her beloved and devoted husband, Isiah Munden; one daughter, Karen Henderson of Chesapeake, VA; one son, Preston Richardson (Patrice) of Chesapeake, VA; two grandsons, Joseph Henderson (Antrynette) of Norfolk, VA and Christopher Henderson of Chesapeake, VA; two granddaughters, Dominique Henderson of Chesapeake, VA and Peliah Richardson of Virginia Beach, VA; one aunt, Niecie Keaton of Wilmington, NC; one brother-in-law, Rev. Melvin Munden; two sisters-in-law, Catherine Munden and Bettie Goganious; cousins raised like sisters and brothers, Bishop, Lina, Kindzell, Jackie, Donald, Alford, Nancy, Hattie, Jean, Terry and a host of other special cousins, nephews, nieces and friends

    There is such a long time closeness between Barbara’s family (Goganious and Munden) and the Clark family. This feels like we are losing someone very special – BECAUSE WE ARE! Barbara was a jewel at all times. A saint, an angel, a gifted musician, a friend. We will miss Barbara. We know she will be sorely missed by her family and all of her friends. We pray God’s Peace, Comfort, and Strength through all of your days ahead.

    To the husband and family of Ms Barbra. Our heart felt condolences to you the family. Ms. Barbra was a soldier in the army of the lord. She let the light of Christ shine wherever she went. She took time to pray with you no matter where she was. She was an encourager to many. We at For Your Glory Salon will miss her greatly. Please except our prayers and condolences.
