Carmen Leslie Barber, 96, passed away on January 9, 2010, after a short illness. Born October 13, 1913, in Williamstown, Mo., she attended high school there, then attended Culver Stockton College in Canton, Mo. Following that she attended Kirksville State Teacher's College in Kirksville, Mo., where she received her master's degree. She taught high school English and art at A.C.C.H.S. in Effingham, Kan., for 17 years. After moving to Canton, Mo., she taught at the junior high school in Quincy, Ill. She was proceeded in death by her husband, Arnold Barber, to whom she was married for 67 years. She is survived by her five children (Elaine Fisher of San Jose, Calif.; Dr. Steve Barber of Kirksville, Mo.; Jenanne Jenkins of Leawood, Kan.; Dr. Alan Barber of Leawood, Kan., and Cecile Moorad of Discovery Bay, Calif.); nine grandchildren, and 12 great grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister Doris Lee of Naples, Fla., Jo Meyer of Collinsville, Ill., and her brother David Leslie of La Jolla, Calif. Carmen had an adventurous spirit and was especially fond of world travel, having gone around the world several times and on trips to Europe too numerous to count, where she made lifelong friends who to this day have acknowledged her importance in their lives. She had a great interest in other cultures and art. She studied French when she was 75, helped design a stained glass window for Culver Stockton College when she was 78 and went on a boat trip down the Zambize River in Africa when she was 82. She also served as state chaplain for the D.A.R. in 1985. Carmen's favorite thing was her family and the love and pride she took in them. Visitation is on Saturday, January 16, 2010, at 10 a.m. at Langsford Funeral Home, with service to follow at 11 a.m. Burial will be Monday, January 18, 2010, at 11 a.m. at the Providence Cemetery in Williamstown, Mo.

In 1913, in the year that Carmen Leslie Barber was born, the Philippine–American War ended for good in June. While the official end of the war was in 1902, fighting continued for several years. An estimated 200,000 to 250,000 total Filipino civilians died and although the U.S. viewed its role as a colonial presence as one of preparing the Philippines for independence, American colonization drastically changed the character off the culture. The Catholic Church was no longer the state religion and English became the primary language of the government.

In 1928, when she was only 15 years old, Mickie Mouse was born! He first appeared in Disney's Steamboat Willie, along with Minnie. Although they were in two previous shorts, this was the first to be distributed. Steamboat Willie took advantage of the new technology and was a "talkie" - music was coordinated with the animation. It became the most popular cartoon of its day.

In 1960, she was 47 years old when on May 1st, an American CIA U-2 spy plane, piloted by Francis Gary Powers, was shot down by a surface-to-air missile over the Soviet Union. Powers ejected and survived but was captured. The U.S. claimed that the U-2 was a "weather plane" but Powers was convicted in the Soviet Union of espionage. He was released in 1962 after 1 year, 9 months and 10 days in prison.

In 1972, at the age of 59 years old, Carmen was alive when on November 7th, Richard Nixon won re-election, amidst the dawning knowledge of the Watergate scandal, by 60.7% to anti-war candidate George McGovern's 37.5%.

In 1993, by the time she was 80 years old, on February 26th, a truck bomb exploded in the garage under the North Tower of the World Trade Center. While the bomb didn't do what was planned (collapse the North Tower into the South Tower), it did kill six people and injured thousands of people.
