Barbara Lee Armour

March 4, 1941 to June 28, 2024

Barbara Lee Armour (nee Wright), 83, of West St. Paul died peacefully at home on Friday, June 28, 2024.

Born to Max Wright and LaVerne Mansky in Chicago, Illinois, Barb was raised by her parents in Anoka, Minnesota, and by her grandmother and aunt in Macomb, Illinois. In 1956 Barb sustained a spinal injury which did not stop her from living a full and productive life. She worked as a medical secretary and receptionist until retirement, was an advocate for disability rights including volunteering for and working at the University of Minnesota Medical School’s Program in Human Sexuality. Barb was a member of and a volunteer for four dog clubs including the Siberian Husky Club of the Twin Cities which gave her and husband John wonderful companion Siberian Huskies.

Barb is survived by her husband of 52 years, John, daughters Mary Wilson (Mike), Ann Wilson, and Deborah Anderson, granddaughters Brittany Wilson, Sahara Wilson, and great-granddaughter A’lariyah Royal and many more family members and friends.

We thank the wonderful caregivers at United Hospital, Allina Home Care, Senior Co-Care, and Hospice for taking such good care of Barb. A sincere thank-you to our family and friends who have supported and loved Barb throughout her life.

She was loved, admired, and will be forever missed. A celebration of Barb’s life will come later this summer.
