Barbara Jean Sosh

 

Barbara Jean Sosh, 89, of Owensboro, passed away at home on Tuesday March 28, 2023. She was born May 7, 1933 in Daviess County to the late Hobert and Nina Arnold Knight. Barbara retired from General Electric and MPD in May 1997 after 45 years of service.

Barbara was fiercely independent and enjoyed spirited conversation with anyone that would listen and join in. She loved to fish, read, and play bunco especially when she was winning! She was a great cook and was the chef for family gatherings, including Thanksgiving dinner, 4th of July, or any excuse to cook ribs and her famous cornbread. She never missed sending a card to loved ones for birthdays and holidays and greatly enjoyed spending time with family and friends.

Barbara is preceded in death by her husband of 46 years, Major Sosh in July 1999 and her sister, Corine Alvey in August 2022.

Surviving are her sons, Donnie Buchanan and wife Susan of Aurora, Colorado; Steve Sosh of Owensboro; granddaughter Jennifer Basham and husband Luke of Aurora, Colorado; four great grandchildren, Vince, Sydney, Ben and Colby Basham of Aurora, Colorado; niece Lisa Burnett and husband Jeff of Owensboro; great nephew Drew Burnett and wife Chelsea of Owensboro.
