March 16, 1948 — January 20, 2024


Barbara Clark Nubie, loving wife, mother, and grandmother passed away surrounded by her family on Saturday, January 20, 2024, at the age of 75.  Born on March 16, 1948, in Campbell County, she was the daughter of the late Christine and Curtis Nowlin.

Barbara's journey through life included notable achievements and a legacy of love and dedication. She graduated from Campbell High School and embarked on a remarkable career at BWXT, where she dedicated 36 years of hard work before retiring.  

Barbara touched the hearts of everyone she encountered. Her kindness, compassion, and genuine care endeared her to friends, family, and colleagues alike. Barbara's impact extended beyond the workplace; she was an integral part of Cross Road Baptist Church, where her faith played a central role in her life.

Barbara served her church community with unwavering dedication. As a faithful member of Cross Road Baptist Church, she actively participated in various roles, including serving on the usher board, being a valued choir member, contributing to the food committee, and fulfilling the role of sexton. Her commitment to Serving The Lord Gospel Singers spanned an impressive 26 years, and her melodious voice and passion for singing brought joy to many.

Barbara Clark Nubie leaves behind a legacy of love and family. She is survived by her devoted husband of 53 years, Jesse Nubie Sr; two loving sons: Jesse Nubie Jr (Jennifer) of Austin, Texas, and Christopher Nubie (Tonya) of Lynchburg, Virginia.  She will be remembered fondly by her granddaughter: Juliet Nubie of Austin, Texas.  Brother, Garland Clark (Shirley), and loving sister, Vannasa Rosser (Charles White), both of Lynchburg, Virginia.  Devoted cousin Mary Fleshman, step-grandchildren Tre'Zhon Reid, and Talib Reid of Lynchburg, Virginia, and cousins Jaeden Smith, and Jordan Smith of Lynchburg Virginia.  Barbara's memory will be cherished by a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends, all of whom were touched by her kindness and love throughout the years.

In honoring the life of Barbara Clark Nubie, let us remember the warmth of her infectious smile, the melody of her voice, and the boundless love she shared with all fortunate enough to know her.  May she rest in eternal peace, surrounded by the heavenly choir she now joins. Her memory will live on through the countless lives she touched, leaving behind a legacy of kindness, faith, and joy that will continue to resonate in the hearts of those who were privileged to be part of her remarkable journey.


During these challenging times of bereavement, the Nubie family is deeply grateful for the outpouring of prayers, calls, and acts of kindness received. A special appreciation is extended to the medical staff at Lynchburg General and Dr. Angel Medina-Bravo of Virginia Baptist Hospital for their exceptional care and support.

As we remember Barbara Clark Nubie, let us also celebrate the love and bonds she created within her family, leaving behind a legacy that will be cherished for generations to come. May her soul rest in peace, and may her family find solace in the precious memories she has left behind.
