Betty Sue Grant Barnes

January 23, 1940 ~ February 8, 2022 (age 82)


Betty Sue Grant Barnes, 82, left this earth Tuesday, February 8, 2022, at her son’s residence in Hamburg.  Born January 23, 1940, in Crossett, she was a resident of Hamburg for many years.  She was a graduate of Crossett High School, an exceptional homemaker, mother, and an active member of her community.  Mrs. Barnes was a member of the Hamburg First United Methodist Church, a past member of Beta Sigma Phi, a former elected member of the Hamburg City Council, and a past President and active member of the Hamburg Garden Club. In her later years, her biggest achievement was her beautiful gardens, which she often could be seen tending with a pack of rescue dogs.

She is preceded in death by her husband of 53 years, Jerry R. Barnes in 2010; an infant daughter, Julie; her parents, Harry and Irene Culp Grant; a sister, Barbara and husband, Gary, nephews, Rusty and Ronnie, many brothers and sisters-in-law and a host of fur babies.

She is survived by her daughter, Diann Barnes of Bishop, Georgia; two sons, Jay Barnes and son-in-law, Mike, of Austin, Texas and Andy Barnes and daughter-in-law, Rhonda, of Hamburg; a sister, Kay Collins and husband, Bert, sister-in-law, Sue Stell; brother-in-law, Mike Barnes and wife, Ethel, and numerous nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank Hospice Home Care of Monticello and a special friend, Hazel Stanley, for helping to care for our mother during her last days.
