Barbara Sue Poindexter of Wayne

Barbara Sue Poindexter, 64, of Wayne, W.Va., formerly of Huntington, W.Va. went to be with the Lord, Thursday July 28, 2011 at Wayne Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. She was born July 6, 1947, a daughter of the late Millard Spencer and Alma Wallace. She was also preceded in death by one son, David Franklin Mays; two brothers, Charles Spencer and B.H. Spencer; and two sisters, Goldie Rice and Charity Stafford.

She is survived by two sons, Michael Mays and wife Kimberly and Shawn Collins; Stephanie Graley, who she considered her own daughter, and Cody Graley, who, to her, was a very special grandson. Also surviving is one brother, Ray Spencer of Columbus, Oh; and special friends, Haleigh Rowe, Chrissy Wray, Rachel Perry, George Carter, Woody Pritchard, Harold Howell; and a very special friend, Melvin; and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends too numerous to mention.

The family would like to extend a special “Thank You” to the staff of Wayne Nursing and Rehabilitation Center and Hospice of Huntington for their loving care.
There will be no funeral services as she requested that her body be donated to scientific medical research, in hopes to cure cancer and other diseases, that others may not have to suffer.

A memorial service honoring her memory will be held by the family at a later date.
