Ms. Barnes was born April 18, 1925, to the late Dennis Gordon and Bonnie Gordon. She was raised in Bagdad, Kentucky and graduated from Bagdad High School in 1943.
She lived in Frankfort most of her life while keeping the family farm in Bagdad. She retired from the Frankfort Plant Board and travelled to many states across the U.S.
As a devout Christian, she was a longtime member of Crestwood Baptist Church and enjoyed being part of the Joy of Ruth Sunday School Class. She also frequently visited Providence Baptist Church.
She was a dedicated mother and grandmother, and always had a smile on her face for her great-grandson. She was a friend to many and a light to everyone she met. She was endearingly called Dee Dee and Granny D by so many that loved her.
She loved reading, walking, collecting Longaberger baskets, had an avid sweet tooth, and was a passionate UK Basketball fan.
She is survived by her two daughters Darlene (Mark) Morris and Karen Barnes Casebier; her granddaughter Jessica (Ryan) Tingle; and great-grandson Tobias Tingle.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband James “Jimmy” Barnes; and only brother Neville Long.
Serving as pallbearers will be Mark Morris, Ryan Tingle, Jamie Welch, Ben Welch, Josh Welch, and Ronnie Tingle. Honorary pallbearers will be John Ledford, Johnny Sherard, Mason Gravitt, Tobias Tingle, Teri Welch, and Janet Tharpe.
