Lou was born November 18, 1928, at West Lake, Arkansas, to George and Edith (Hughes) Pegram. She was one of eight children.
On April 8, 1948, she married Bennie Barnett and to this union three children were born. She and Bennie had lived in Duncan since 1962. She was a member of the VFW Lodge 1192 Ladies Auxiliary, Women of the Moose, and served as a Gray Lady (volunteer) at Lindley Hospital.
She was a wonderful homemaker and seamstress, and a devoted wife and mother. Her daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were her pride and joy.
She is survived by her two daughters, Stefanie Parker and husband Sandy of Fairfax, Oklahoma, and Sharon Bearden and husband David of Duncan; four grandsons, Blake Bearden and wife Caroline of Upland, California, Seth Bearden and wife Tami of Newcastle, Oklahoma, Matthew Parker and Mason Parker, both of Fairfax, Oklahoma; two great-grandchildren, Elle and Natalie Bearden, who were the apple of her eye. She is also survived by a brother, Milford Pegram and wife Milly of Pagosa Springs, Colorado; and two sisters, Marvie Newkirk and husband Charles, and Renelda Forga, all of Springdale, Arkansas.
Lou was preceded in death by her husband of 63 years, Bennie Barnett, who passed away two months ago; her parents; an infant daughter in 1953; four brothers, Bill, Royce, Eldon and Carl Melton Pegram; and two cherished grandchildren, Destiny Bearden and Ben Parker.
Pallbearers will be Stefanie, Matthew and Mason Parker, and Sharon, Blake and Seth Bearden.
We were blessed to have such a loving and caring mother and grandmother. We love you Mom.
