She leaves behind grandchild Everly Farris and a new granddaughter to be born this June. Also surviving are her siblings, a brother Paul Capp of Granada Hills, CA; and brother, David Capp and wife Janet Capp of Myrtle Beach SC. She is also survived by her former Husband of 31 years Ben Southland of San Ramon, California. The family wishes to extend heartfelt gratitude to the staff at Lynchburg Health and Rehab who made her final months comfortable. We appreciate all your hard work and efforts in providing her care. Barbara was born in Hollywood, California on August 9, 1955, the first of the three children. She was lovingly known as “Babzy” or “Babs” to those closest to her. She loved her brothers David and Paul, and was known to spoil both of them (especially her baby brother Paul). She loved listening to Donna Summers and The Monkees on her 8-Track Player in her first car, a yellow Fiat. She enjoyed sewing her own clothes. She married the love of her life, Ben Southland and moved to Idaho for his career as a pilot with Skywest Airlines. She saw this move as an adventure in her life, and this is something she would often tell her friends and family with a smile in her eyes: “Life is an adventure!” In her final years she recalled her days in Idaho as the happiest times of her life. Together they had three children and enjoyed many luxurious travels and delicious meals. She especially loved traveling to Hawaii, boating and camping in Stanley, Idaho, going to Las Vegas, and cruises. She spent many comfortable nights at home raising her children. You could often find her enjoying her favorite music on the couch with a glass of wine in her hand. Barbara was an excellent cook. Her Prime Rib feast with Yorkshire Pudding was celebrated in the family. Her love of family gatherings was passed on to her children. She loved her miniature schnauzers. We hope she is now reunited with her favorite pets, especially Abby. Barbara loved being surrounded by cherished family and friends. Her passion for being a good host was unsurpassed and has been inherited by her children. She was adept at bringing people together, and would want everyone to enjoy life and “Live each day to the fullest.” A private Celebration of Life will be held with family and close friends.
