Barbara Cumbie Bloodworth passed away on Friday, April 17, 2020 at Margaret Z. Dozier Hospice House in Tallahassee.


Barbara was born May 27, 1949 in Apalachicola to Willard Earl Cumbie and Ouida Tucker Cumbie. She is survived by her two sons, Reed (Jennifer) and James Bloodworth; two grandchildren, Brennan and Margaret Bloodworth; sister Carolyn Smith; and brothers Russell (Missy) and Wallace (Mary) Cumbie.


Barbara was a retired elementary school teacher, having worked for Leon County and Franklin County for more than 35 years. She truly loved teaching "her kids." Over the years, her former students often made her day with a "Hi, Ms. Bloodworth!" followed by a warm conversation. The family thanks and appreciates all of her former students, fellow teachers, and friends for the joy and fulfillment they brought to Barbara and fun times they enjoyed together.


Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, there will be no funeral or visitation at this time. However, the family will hold a celebration of Barbara’s life at a later date.
