Barbara L. Duncan, 89, of Fort Wayne, passed away on November 6th. Born to Clyde and Martha Chance in West Frankfort, IL. She married William Duncan in Kincaid, IL on November 17, 1951. After moving several times, her family planted roots in Fort Wayne where she raised her family. Her most cherished moments were spent with her family, especially her grand kids, never missing a single activity that they were involved in. Barbara was warmly known as “Grandma Bunny”, by her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She worked for Davenport Insurance as a customer service representative, retiring when she was 79 years old. She loved WOWO radio and tuned in to every Komet Hockey game. Surviving are her children, Jeffrey Duncan, of Indianapolis, Tammy (Greg) Duvall, of Fort Wayne, Melissa (Tim) Smith, of Fort Wayne, and Tim (Cheryl) Duncan of Fort Wayne; grandchildren, Kyle, Abbey, Seve, Megan, Madelyn, Jordan, Hayley, Cole, and Claire; and 8 great grandchildren; Brothers, Jerry (Anna) Chance, and Bruce (Paula) Chance both of Taylorville, IL; and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Barbara was preceded in death by her husband William in 1980; daughter, Debbie Duncan Judge in 1994; and a brother Bobby Chance in 2020. A graveside service will be held on Friday November 27, at 11 am at Lindenwood Cemetery.

Dear Duncan Family, I am saddened at the passing of Barbara. Learning of her passing reminds me so well of my dear friend Debbie Who passed at Thanksgiving time as well. Debbie and I were school mates and continued our friendship with monthly dinners and phone conversations, I have missed her so! You may remember me as Minister of Care ai Saint Joseph UMC , 1990-2008. I remember your mom as a wonderfully caring person. I am saddened by your loses and please know you have my deepest sympathy. In Christ's LOVE. Linda Martin
