Ora Mae Barnett, Taylor County, KY (1922-2017)

She was the daughter of the late General Lawson and Lina Thomas Lawson, and the widow of Everett "Dude" Barnett, her husband of 64 years. She leaves 12 direct living descendants, spanning four generations. She professed faith in Christ and was a member of Robinson Creek Baptist Church. In the summer you could find Ora Mae working in the yard, gardening and canning fresh vegetables. Another favorite pastime was mowing the yard with her new lawn mower. Hard work was something that she did not mind and came natural. She enjoyed cooking and her home made meals will be greatly missed.
