Barbara Sharon Slover Luster went home to be with her Savior on Monday, September 20, 2010 after a long and brave struggle with colon cancer. Born in Matador, Texas on June 4, 1951, Barbara attended school and graduated from Motley County High School. She received a Bachelor of Arts from West Texas University where she met and fell in love with her husband of 36 years, Jerry Luster. They married on December 29, 1973. Barbara was a dedicated wife and mother and worked as a stay-home-mom while her children were young. She later returned to her teaching career where she served at Cisco ISD for over 17 years. She was an active member of her local church body and loved spending time with friends, family, and most of all her grandchildren. Barbara is survived by her husband Jerry Luster of Cisco; two daughters, Lisha Ruda and husband Stan of Phoenix, Arizona, Amanda Schaefer and husband David of Lubbock, Texas; two granddaughters, Liberty and Gracelyn Ruda of Phoenix, Arizona. She is also survived by her mother, Faye Slover, of Cisco, Texas.
Services will be Wednesday, September 22, 2010 at 4:00 p.m. at First Baptist Church in Cisco with internment to follow at Scranton Cemetery.
The family wishes to express heartfelt gratitude to Hendrick Hospice and Dr. Anton Melnyk with Texas Oncology for their outstanding care. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials be made to the Barbara Luster Memorial Scholarship Fund at Cisco ISD, PO Box 1645, Cisco, Texas 76437.
