Obituary of Barbara Elizabeth McLeod Remerow
Barbara Elizabeth McLeod Remerow, 72, was granted eternal peace on July 23, 2022, following complications from cancer treatment. She died peacefully surrounded by her family and friends following a day filled with an abundance of love, laughter, and fond memories.
Barbara was born December 8, 1949, in Belle Glade, Florida, to Polly Elizabeth Grant and Evan Ward “Mac” McLeod. She was raised in Clewiston, Florida. Barbara’s father passed away when she was just 3 years old. Her mother remarried Claude “Mac” McLendon, who raised Barbara and her brothers as his own. Barbara graduated from Clewiston High School in 1967. In 1968, Barbara met the love of her life, Raymond Jude Remerow. They were married in 1969 and lived in Clewiston, where they raised their three children, Erin, Kristoffer, and Tyler. In 2007, Barbara and Ray moved to Slidell, Louisiana to be closer to their grandchildren.
Barbara was a loving and caring wife, mother, and Mimi, and a hardworking and dedicated coworker and civil servant. Barbara retired from the United States Postal Service in 2008 after 25 years of service to the communities she worked in.
Barbara unconditionally and unselfishly loved and cared for her children and grandchildren. One of the many ways she showed her love was through her cooking. From BLT sandwiches to salads and sweet potato casseroles, when Barbara made you a meal, you knew she loved you.
Barbara truly lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures. She enjoyed cooking, chatting with friends and family, and watching her favorite TV shows. She was one of a kind and to be loved by her was to be truly blessed.
Barbara is survived by her three children, Erin Remerow Parsons (Scott) of Arlington, Virginia; Kristoffer Jude Remerow (Kristen) of Slidell, Louisiana; and Tyler Raymond Remerow (Monika) of Alexandria, Virginia; eight grandchildren, Rae Elizabeth (21), Sykes (17), and Carlisle (11) Parsons; Kyleigh (19), Kendall (15), and Kadyn (10) Remerow; and Jude (3) and Liam (21 months) Remerow; two brothers, Ken McLeod (Olga) of Rome, Georgia and Larry McLeod of Clewiston, Florida; one sister, Hannah McLendon Maly (Shayne) of North Dakota; six nieces; and seven nephews. Barbara was preceded in death by her husband, Raymond Jude Remerow; her mother, Polly Elizabeth McLendon; her father, Evan Ward “Mac” McLeod; her stepfather, Claude “Mac” McLendon; and her brothers, Phillip McLeod, Gilbert McLeod, Richard McLeod, and Claude McLeod.
