Rena Barnes Halbert. Rena was born in Kentucky Aug 26, 1904. Her parents were J.R. Barnes and Lela Charlton Barnes.
Aunt Rena was a house wife and was married to my Uncle Ocie.
She died in Lakeworth Nursing home on Oct 29, 1965. She was 61 years, 2 months and 3 days old.
CAUSE OF DEATH: Medullary Failure (cancer), Toxemia, Hypostatic Pneumonia.
OTHER CONDITIONS: Diabetic, Old Myocardial Infarction
My aunt Rena was a small woman, but she was a remarkable one. I found out in later years that she lost a son the day he was born. She showed great kindness and love toward my brother and me. We lived close to her house so in the summer time we would walk to her house. Today I think about her generosity toward us.
My Uncle Ocie and Aunt Rena had a large house with tile and wood floors. My brother and I would run in our sock feet and "slide" across her nice, shinny floors. Or we would sit on our rears and turn round and round. We had a ball.
She had Boston Terrier's. Knowing now that she lost her only child, I know these dogs became her "babies."
She had an amazing front yard. It was full of flowers of all sorts. In fact the flowers were the front yard.
Many thanks to Ken Jones for transferring this memorial to me.
