Barbara Ann Pullen, 82 passed away March 14, 2023 in Mesa Arizona.
Barbara was born October 13, 1940, in Mesa, Arizona to Arch Laurence and Lena Mae Sorden. Barbara was a homemaker and active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Ladder Day Saints. She led a very active life filled with family, church and friends. She loved to keep busy volunteering and visiting the Temple, spending time with family, studying scriptures, writing in her journal and of course going on her daily walk. Barbara loved to play sports from softball, basketball, volleyball, snow skiing and even competed in diving – but her absolute favorite activity was dancing. She would dance to any kind of music, grabbing anyone nearby to join her. Coming from a musically talented family, she absolutely loved watching her siblings play and sing on stage especially in her brother Bobby’s night club. Barbara loved playing board games and cards and when that competitive Sorden blood kicked in, not even her grandkids had a chance.
Barbara is survived by her children Richard J. (Michelle) Kudlicki, Daniel (Anne Marie) Kudlicki, Deena (William) Moffat, Dorine (Kurt) Neeley and Ashley (Dallin) Bradley, her 23 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren, her brothers Leon, Larry & Jerry Sorden and sister Carol Watson. Barbara is preceded in death by husband Larry Pullen, grandchildren Richard J. Kudlicki Jr, Tristian Maxwell and siblings Doris, Bobby, Ricky and Kathy.
