El Paso County
Friday February 5, 1932
JOHN T. WHITE, By Mrs. John C. Pruitt
The many neighbors and friends of Henry L. Johnson, Sr. extend their deepest heartfelt sympathy to him and his remaining family since they experienced the sad misfortune of the death of his youngest daughter, Mrs. Lou Ella Barnett, which came on last Tuesday evening at eight o'clock at the home of another daughter, Mrs. Linna Mae Markel, in El Paso, Texas. Mrs. Barnett contracted that dreadful disease, tuberculosis, about six months ago, and about three months ago went to El Paso where she hoped the climate would retard her illness. She became seriously ill about two weeks before her death and her husband was summoned from California and her other relatives from various points in Texas.
Mrs. Barnett was born in Miflin, Tennessee, near Jackson, twentythree years ago, later moving to Arkansas and then to Texas with her parents. She was converted at an early age and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church, south, in which she lived a consecrated life. She was united in marriage with Dan R. Barnett in Ft. Worth in February of 1928, to which union there was born one daughter, Mary Lou, now about 18 months old.
Moore Funeral Home of Arlington had charge of the funeral arrangements. The services were conducted by Rev. S. L. Culwell at the First Methodist Church in Arlington at 2:30 o'clock on Saturday afternoon, with interment beside her mother in Parkdale cemetery.
Besides the above mentioned, Mrs. Barnett is survived by another sister, Mrs. Mabel Dunkin of Meridian, and three brothers: Bernard and Carlton Johnson of Ft. Worth and Henry L. Johnson, Jr., of Handley.
Mr. Barnett and little daughter are now making their home with his mother in Ft. Worth.
