    • Barbara Taylor Pufpaff, 83, passed away early Saturday, June 4, 2016 at New Hanover Medical Center. She was born in Danville, VA on August 8, 1932 to the late Harry Zachary Taylor and Mattie Smith Taylor. She met and married the love of her life, Clifton "Cliff" Pufpaff while he was stationed at Fort Bragg. Barbara and Cliff celebrated 64 wonderful years together before he preceded her in death last October. The Army life allowed Barbara the adventurous life she dreamed of as a child. Her husband's career afforded them the opportunity to share exploring the world over the course of their marriage. Always a loving mother, grandmother and recent great-grandmother she not only leaves an empty place in the lives and hearts of her family but also in the hearts of an extensive network of friends and acquaintances. A service to celebrate her life will be held at 11:00 am, Saturday, June 11, 2016 at Hampstead Baptist Church, 67 Factory Road, Hampstead 28443. Visitation will be held one hour prior to the service from 10:00 to 10:45 am at the church. Interment will follow at Sea Lawn Memorial Park, Hampstead. She leaves to cherish her memory: sons: Michael A. Pufpaff (Dee) of Raleigh and Gary W. Pufpaff of Holly Ridge; daughter, Donna P. Keeler (Mike) of Raleigh; grandsons: Jeremy Keeler of Wendell and Matthew Keeler (Bridget) of Knightdale; granddaughter, Mattie P. Lewis (Josh) of Clayton; great-granddaughter: Paxley Keeler (Matthew's daughter); great-grandson: Emmett Lewis (Mattie's son); and a sister, Lorraine T. Collie of Danville, VA. In lieu of flowers, the family has suggested memorial contributions be made to The Wounded Warrior Program, PO Box 758517, Topeka, KS 66675 or New Hanover Rehabilitation Hospital Patient Assistance Fund, 2259 South 17th St., Wilmington, NC 28401 Condolences to the family may be sent to under Obituaries.
