Barbara J.  (Barnes) Clapper, 83, of Orlando, died on Tuesday, September 13, 2022. One of 10 children, she was born in Liberty Township, Butler County, Ohio to the late Robert and Maude (Vance) Barnes. She met her love, George Clapper when she moved to Florida and married him when she was 16 and he was 18. They resided in the same home they purchased since 1959. Barbara and George owned a Lawn and Tree Service Company, and she worked behind the scenes supporting him every step of the way. Barb was the neighborhood mom and always put others’ needs and wants before her own.   She was known to always send cards with sweet notes of thanks and love to family and friends. She focused on details to make others happy, smile or just to have a great day. Our Mom had the most caring, selfless, and loving heart. She will be missed deeply by all who knew and loved her. She is survived by, George, her beloved husband of 66 years; her children: Laird Clapper and wife Regina, Cynthia Saffaei and husband Saeed and Kenly Boyett and husband Brad; her grandchildren: Jessica Gerber and husband Kenny, Dana Zoelle, Lauren and Lindsey Boyett and Kylie Clapper; her great-grandchildren: Jordan and Madison Gerber and her sister, Lula Mae "Bubs" Bogard.
