We lost a great one!

Filed under: tributes — unwriter1 @ 6:33 am

We are down one great spiritualist, although I believe the spirit of greatness has just enhanced the world. Barbara Williamson-Woods (Babs) passed away at 9:00 pm Montana time. She is a full-blooded Lakota. No, this was no mistake. She may be gone physically but she will be forever around us, so ‘is’ is correct!We had our own language on Instant Messenger. I told her often if I can understand her typing, I could understand anyone’s. We called it ‘Babese’. This young lady was my mentor, my friend. She joined two spirits in a way no one else could. I pray that connection lasts forever. I am very proud to say I knew her and her grandson, Noah.

Babs was a writer, an author. Her books, Inner Trappings, Sierra Skies and others can be reviewed here . She was a poetess, a writer, a friend and will be sorely missed.


  1. I can’t even begin to express my sadness. I only knew Babs for a short time, but loved her like a sister, much like another who was also of Native Blood. I called her my friend, called her Babs, but most of all now, I call her Angel, for she is now with her God.

  5. Although I didn’t know her personally, the world always misses someone who took the time and applied their talents to communicate with others. Godspeed, Babs.

  6. The White Wolf lives still-she only looks from higher on her mountain.

  8. I have only known Babs through emails and on the phone, but she touched more lives than any other person I have ever met. She will be sorely missed. However, I can only imagine that an “earthly angel” has just changed her address, and her forwarding address is to a “heavenly angel.” Babs, your spirit will live on here forever by the people you touched.
