Barbara Cotton Richardson, 61, of Minneola, Florida, passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 21, 2020, at South Lake Hospital in Clermont, Florida, with her loving family by her side. Barbara was born Aug. 23, 1958, in Winter Garden, Florida, the daughter of the late Clifford Cotton Sr. and Martha Patsy Cotton.

Barbara was the loving wife of Edward Grimes. Barbara was a homemaker and has helped raise a multitude of children and many more grandchildren. She was known for being generous, kind and loving as a wife, mother, sister, grandmother and now organ donor.

It would be wrong to say that Barbara lost her battle, because she never stopped fighting. No matter how sick she was, she was always determined. When anyone else would have broken, Barbara stayed strong. Through her, we know what resilience and perseverance truly look like.
Besides her husband, Edward, she is survived by her children, Dixie Todd, Jessica Todd, of Orlando, Florida, the late Billy Joe Williams; and her stepchildren, Jennifer Grimes, James Grimes, Ashley Grimes, Chasity Grimes, of Minneola, Florida; two brothers, Clifford Cotton, of Polk City, Florida, Jerry Cotton, of Lake County, Florida; three sisters, Sally Ricks, of Clermont, Florida, Sandra Metts, of Winter Garden, Florida, Carol Richardson, of Clermont, Florida; and many loving nieces, nephews, and grandchildren.
