Betty Jean Moreland Barnes, 89, passed away peacefully in her home on September 5, 2019. Betty’s beautiful looks were unmatched by her beautiful spirit. She was born in Nampa Idaho on December 17, 1929. She met and married the love of her life Clyde Spencer Barnes in May of 1949 in Oakland California and they shared 58 years together and raised 4 amazing children.

Betty had no greater passion in her life than the love of her family. As Clyde’s successful career as retail manager at JCPenney progressed the family moved multiple times. Betty was able to create enduring friendships in every new town and make each a home for the entire family. Her smile could light up a room and she had a great joy for life. A passionate artist, Betty captured her love of her early years on her family farm in her paintings.

Betty is survived by her children Earleen Marks of Abilene, Kevin Barnes of Abilene, Rachelle Glass and her husband James of Pikeville KY and Steve Barnes and his wife Kelly of Dallas, TX. She is also survived by her grandchildren Shawn Marks and his wife Jen, Suzanne Albers and her husband David, Krystine Ayers and her husband Paul and Ryan Glass along with five wonderful great grandchildren, Addisen, Keagen, Logan, Isaac and Silas, and two more on the way. She is preceded in death by her husband Clyde, her parents Earl and Thelma Moreland and her son-in-law Pat Marks.

There will be a celebration of Betty’s life at First United Methodist Church in Abilene, Tuesday 4:30-6:30. She will be interred at St. Patrick’s Cemetery in Ogden Kansas in a private ceremony. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Alzheimer’s Foundation and may be sent in care of the Martin-Becker-Carlson Funeral Home, 414 NW 3rd, Abilene, Kansas 67410.
“Remember me with smiles and laughter for that is how I will remember you all. If you can only remember me with tears, then don’t remember me at all.”
