Ms. Barbara “B.A.” Anne Wilbanks, age 75 of Chatsworth, passed away on Tuesday, March 7, 2023 at Chattanooga Hospice Center.
B.A. was a member of Holly Creek Baptist Church as well as the American Red Cross and the Southern Baptist Disaster Relief Team. B.A. was a loyal friend who was sassy, funny, & oh-so-smart & talented. You never had to worry about what she was thinking, as she would willingly share her thoughts. She was extremely generous with her time, fellowship, knowledge, & community contributions. Many benefited from her dedicated volunteer service via the Red Cross. For those of us lucky enough to call her Friend, it is challenging to imagine a world without her bold personality.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Ben and Thelma White Wilbanks; brother, Ben Keith Wilbanks Jr.
Survivors include her sister-in-law, Charlene Wilbanks of Marietta, GA; nephews and nieces, Keith and Karin Wilbanks Westphal of Marietta, GA and Keith and Denise Wilbanks of Marietta, GA; great nephews, Owen, Evan, and Alek Westphal; extended family also survives.
