I've looked all over the message boards, several google searches with many keywords and can't seem to find this answer.

Can Towelroot be uninstalled? If so what is that process?

Use superuser to unroot. And then just Uninstall towelroot. That was how I unrooted.

I tried that, Root Checker said I wasn't rooted, but the Barclays Banking app still detected some left-over(s), and said my phone was rooted, and refused to install

That procedure does not fully work. Supersu is still hidden on the phone. You will see that if you try to reinstall it. You first need to reroot. Afterwards, you must manually delete the su file from system/xbin with a root file manager, then uninstall the supersu app, and reboot the phone to unroot.
