Barbara Diane (nee: Botkins) Scherzinger, age 80, passed away at St. Elizabeth Hospice Care in Edgewood, Kentucky on November 25th. Barbara was born on May 31st, 1943 in Owen County, Kentucky, the daughter of the late Rodman Price Botkins and Elizabeth “Louise" (nee: Parsons) Botkins.

Barbara is survived by her son, Rudy Scherzinger (Wendy) of Hurricane Mills, Tennessee and her daughter Keleigh Arnett (Brian) of Lexington, Kentucky as well as her adored grandchildren McKenzie Elizabeth Scherzinger, Grace Arnett, Beau Arnett, and Esme Arnett.

Barbara deeply loved her children, grandchildren and all animals, especially dogs. She instilled her core values of compassion, integrity, hard work and self determination into her children with all that she did. If you spent any time with Barbara, you knew she always had a pot of coffee on and an open door policy as long as you intended to play scrabble

Private services for immediate family will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to The Facial Pain Research Foundation which was founded in 2011 with the singular mission of finding a cure for trigeminal neuralgia.
