On Saturday, February 20, 2021, our dear Aunt, friend and animal lover Barbara Marks was called home. She was 94.
Barbara was born and raised in Hollywood, California, and graduated from Fairfax High School. Following in the steps of her father Thomas Percy Pratt, she worked in films and movies as an Editor and Film Cutter for over 35 years before retiring.
She called Burbank her home for over 50 years, where she was quite active in different women’s and seniors’ groups. Every December she would be sitting at the mall in front of the wishing tree collecting donated toys for the children; watching the little children gave her so much delight. She loved to sing until a stroke took some of her mobility, she never missed practice with her Mellowtones, they went all over the Valley singing and entertaining everyone…oh how she loved to entertain.
