April Lynn Barnes, 53, of Tar Heel passed away on Thursday, September 2, 2021 at Columbus Regional Healthcare.

April was an enthusiastic and optimistic lady. She adored her family and rarely met a stranger. Her beautiful smile and positive attitude made her a joy to be around. She was a beautiful soul that left too soon but will certainly not be forgotten.
