Rebecca Lynn Roberts Barnes, or Becky as everyone knew her, was born January 17, 1955 in Van Buren, MO to parents William Eugene Roberts Sr. and Betty June Tucker Roberts. She departed this world at her home in Winona, MO on March 26, 2015, at the age of 60 years.
Becky grew up in Winona, MO but a large part of her childhood and some of her most special memories were spent on Rocky, around Rocky Creek area and the Current River. Her family used to play bluegrass and country music and would travel all over to perform. She talked of these days very fondly over the years and they were a big part of the person she became.
Becky attended Winona High School, graduating in 1973.
She met the love of her life, Jimmy Earl Barnes Sr., “Jim” while in high school and they were married May 19, 1972, in Winona, MO. To this union were born 3 children; Corinna Lenore, Jimmy Earl Jr., and Clinton Duane….who she affectionately called Cory, Jeb, and Clint.
She is survived by her husband, Jim Barnes, her children, Cory Barnes Fulk, Jeb Barnes, and Clinton Barnes. She had a son-in-law and three daughters-in-law, that she considered equal with her own children, they were just as special as the ones she gave birth to. So as she called it, Everrett Fulk was her other son. Brenda Barnes, Jonie Barnes, and Cayla Barnes were considered her true daughters as well. She is also survived by her mother June Roberts of Winona, MO., 4 sisters; Glenda Burns and husband Roger of Mountain View, MO, Brenda Counts and husband Rex of Winona, MO, Betty Needels and husband Clifford of Winona, MO, and Beverly Roberts of Winona, MO. She is also survived by a multitude of nieces, nephews, cousins, and extended family, too many to mention here. She was preceded in death by her father Gene Roberts and her brother Bill Roberts.
She is also survived by her grandchildren, Erika Sayer of North Pole Alaska, Olivia Barnes of Winona, MO, Tyler Fulk of Winona, MO, Kendra Barnes of Winona, MO, Dusty Barnes of Thermopolis, WY, Tori Barnes of Thermopolis, WY, Andi Barnes of Winona, MO, Kolton Patterson of Winona, MO, and Kathan Barnes of Winona, MO. Taking care of and loving her grandchildren is what gave her the most joy. She loved and spoiled these kids beyond measure. Her favorite title ever, was the one given by her grandchildren. She was their one and only MeMa.
Becky spent many years working at Paramount Cap Factory in Winona, where she made many lifelong friends. Many of her last years were spent as a homemaker and a Mema to watch over what ever grandkid was deciding to hang out with her for the day.
Becky had a number of hobbies. She loved music, reading romance novels, flea market shopping with her very special friend Velma Russell. Everyone that knew her will recall her fondness, perhaps borderline obsession with chocolate. She loved to have big family dinners to celebrate whatever she had the mind to celebrate. Everyone loved her cooking especially her homemade bread and turkey and dumplings. Becky always had a smile for everyone, she lit up the room. She knew how to make everyone feel as if they were the only one in the room. No one went unnoticed or ignored while she was there. She was often the life of the party and had a beautiful smile and an infectious laugh. She loved her friends and family dearly and will be missed beyond measure. This world will never be the same without her.
