May 15, 1942 ~ July 15, 2022 (age 80)



Barbara Ann Gilman, 80, of Chapmanville, WV, departed this life on Friday, July 15th, 2022 at CAMC Memorial Hospital in Charleston, WV.

Born May 15, 1942, at Parsley, WV, she was the daughter of the late Ashley Sidney Dillon and the late Dixie “Newsome” Dillon.

Barbara was a nurse for many years and co-owner of New Attitude, a former retail clothing store in Chapmanville, WV.

Barbara cherished her family and enjoyed spending time with them.

She was a godly woman, and she understood that caring for her home and family were of the utmost importance. Barbara lived with Christ-like selflessness. She found joy in serving, loving, and doing for others. She walked in love and obedience to God and passed along her faith throughout her family. She was prayerful, confident, fearless, and noble. The image of God shown in her countenance, and she will be missed beyond measure.

Most importantly, Barbara was confident that her faith in Christ Jesus would lead to life eternal with her Heavenly Father one day. Barbara’s family is also confident in this, and although they will miss her, they will rejoice knowing this is not the final chapter for Barbara.
