Mother was born March 5, 1922 in McDade, Louisiana to Oscar Barnett and Elizabeth Catherine Gandy Hicks and went to be with the Lord on October 19, 2007.
She grew up in Shreveport and graduated from Fair Park High School in 1941. She worked for a while at the Baptist Book Store. She was a member of Emmanuel Baptist Church. Mother was very family oriented and her grand and great-grandchildren were her greatest joy. She participated in all their activities and read to their classes at school. People were drawn to mother for her laughter and "gift of gab". She could always comfort you and knew just what to say. She loved watching her westerns on TV and enjoyed china painting, gardening, fishing and camping with friends in Arkansas.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, Clyde Elmer "Baw Baw" Harp.
Survivors include her daughter, Fran Nash and husband, Kenny; grandson, Jeffrey Nash and wife, Micheal; granddaughter, Julie Harris and husband, Jamey; three great grandchildren, Macy, Shelby and Jeffrey Harris; two sisters-in-law, Grace Gibson and Amelia Harp; her canine companion, Crickett; special daughter, Kathy Burnette; and special granddaughters, Gina and Melanie Flores.
Pallbearers will be Bruce McGee, Ed Cull, David Wrightson, Ron Hixson, Ted Vlas, and Bobby Flores. Honorary pallbearers will be Lola McGee and Bernice Shires.
The family requests that memorials be made to Emmanuel Baptist Church Children's Ministry.
