FAYETTEVILLE -- Graveside services and interment for Anna Ruth Barnes, 93, of Cookeville, formerly of Fayetteville, will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, July 15, at Riverview Memorial Gardens in Fayetteville.
Additionally, a memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. on Sunday, July 24, at Heritage Pointe Senior Living Community in Cookeville.
Mrs. Barnes died Tuesday, July 12, 2011, in Cookeville Regional Medical Center.
She was born Jan. 25, 1918, in Monterey to the late Pascal Adolphus and Mary Lou Neal Kirby.
Mrs. Barnes lived most of her life in the Howell community of Lincoln County. She was active in her community, where she was a member of Howell Cumberland Presbyterian Church. She was a longtime volunteer with the Lincoln County Memorial Hospital Auxiliary.
After moving to Cookeville in 2005, she joined Salem United Methodist Church. She also joined Algood Senior Citizens and became an avid quilter. Until recently, when her health declined, she and a group of ladies met every Tuesday and Thursday for several years, working on quilts to be auctioned at the Algood Quilt Festival.
Her family includes a daughter and son-in-law, Mary Alice and Wayne Spain of Cookeville; two sons and daughters-in-law, Tom and Valerie Anderson of Nashville and Earl and Cindy Anderson of Ripley; six grandchildren, Chris and wife Kristen Anderson, Lindsay Spain, Ashley and husband Stan Davis, Sarah Anderson, Nathan Anderson and Rachel Anderson; three great-grandchildren; a brother, Edwin Kirby of Columbia; and three sisters, Sue Nunley of Kingston, Elizabeth Redmon of Vicksburg, Miss., and Martha Stewart of Huntland.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by two husbands, John T. Anderson and Colyar Barnes; two brothers, Neal Kirby and Charles Kirby; and a sister, Veatrice Alred.
Mrs. Barnes' family suggests that memorial donations be made to the Algood Senior Citizens Center, 125 4th Ave., Algood, TN 38506, or Tennessee Heart PLLC, 228 W. 4th Street, Cookeville, TN 38501.
Rev. Tom Smith, former minister at Cookeville First United Methodist Church, will officiate at the services.
