Sarah Lee Barker, 79, of Woodfin passed away on Tuesday, January 18, 2022 at the CarePartners Solace Center in Asheville.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded by a brother, Harrison Stines, and grandmother, Dora Wooten. Surviving are her daughter, Jessica M. Rathbone of Woodfin, NC; brother, Eddie Stines and his spouse, Judy, of Leicester, NC; granddaughter, Samantha Rathbone of Woodfin, NC; and great-grandson, Skyler Rathbone.
